Satin Façonné Naris

In 1536 Barthelemy Naris and Etienne Turquet Piedmont traders attach to Lyon, to build factories for the production of precious fabrics. Francis I, by letters patent, agrees to give them the same privileges as the city of Tours, and so installs the guild of workers in "cloth of gold, silver and silk." Naris and his workers are declared free from any taxes, any service of custody or militia, provided they work in the city and not outside.

This Renaissance­-inspired design evokes the "tulipomania" raging in Europe in the seventeenth century.
