To participate in the protection of the environment: to safeguard the diversity of animal breeds and plant species.
In 1992, a small number of craftsmen and wool producers from the Drôme region formed an association under the French law of 1901 called "LA TOISON D'ART".
They wished to promote through group actions their trades whose knowledge goes from the raw material, the natural animal or vegetable fibres, to the finished products.
