BURLATS, TARN FRANCE
Located in Burlats, in the historic area of Castres, the atelier Joly is closely linked to the wool industry. Myriam Joly is from a family of farmers of the region and imported the first angora goats in France in 1983. She initially worked with independent manufacturers from the region, and then had the opportunity to buy over one of them. This marked the beginning of the story of Atelier Joly, specializing in wool accessories (beanies, scarves, gloves). They were initially made out of the mohair wool from her farm, and later expanded to a variety of natural fibers like wool and cashmere. Her Japanese machines enables her to work on precise and qualitative finishing. A wonderful story as today the atelier counts more than thirty workers.
