    Something ABOUT L'HISTOIRE DE LIN.

    Linen is a natural material of which the history goes back to the Stone Age.
    Grown in the farmers' own fields, water-ret in the nearby brook/stream it then is made glossy and flat at home.
    For a very long time it has been an important part of the Breton family customs, taught by mothers to daughters.....

    The Area Le Tr?gor has the ideal climate to grow linen.....

    This industry of linnen fabric in the West knew its height in the 17th and 18th Century.
    The fabric was processed at Saint-Brieuc, Quintin, Moncontour, Uzel, Loud?ac and in Pontivy and Josselin.

    The 14th of August 1676, there came important new Rules which gave the linen from the West its quality mark.
    Les Bretagnes became the best-known region for Linen in France and it was exported to other parts of France and to Saint-Malo or Nantes to Spain and from there to THE NEW WORLD as America was called at that time!



    What to buy: whatever you can pay for and take into consideration when you will be back here again......

    Bi-weekly market: Local Produce

    by illumina Written Feb 14, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every Wednesday and Saturday morning, a market is held in the centre of St Brieuc. There are a variety of stalls: fresh produce including seafood, fruit and vegetables; local beers and ciders; local crafts and clothes and general bric-a-brac.

    The market spreads out from the square into all the narrow side streets, and gives a wondefully bustling feel to this town, which, like all the other small towns in this area stops dead at lunchtime! Still, plenty of time to grab a galette or two from the many carts selling them!
