France Tapestry Tour 2019, Episode 7, Albi

In the middle of the tapestry tour, we drove south to Albi. This is an interesting town on a beautiful river with a massive cathedral. It also is home to the Talouse-Lautrec museum. We took a day trip from Albi to Soreze where we visited the Dom Robert Museum which was definitely a highlight of the trip. The video blog tells you more about it!

I enjoyed the Dom Robert Museum and will post more about these tapestries at a later date. They were woven mostly in the 1960s and are full of fun details about nature.

I was interested to see the storage system at the Dom Robert Museum. There were several of these large climate-controlled cases full of rolled up tapestries and cartoons.
