France boasts a long and outstanding history of silk production. More than 200 items of exhibits collected by CNSM, concerning French silk textiles, drafting, etc., will be present in Glory on Silk: French Textiles (1700 to the Present) to show the rich silk culture in France and the exchanges on silk between France and China. We intend to promote the exchange and communication between France and China to highlight the importance of intercultural dialogue along the Silk Road.
