ATBC Challes is an artisanal weaving site which is unique in the world. It is specialised in weaving and braiding horse hair by hand for luxurious Upholstery textiles.

The hair is woven in the workshop by weavers using traditional ancestral techniques inherited from a 1787 patent, working on listed Jacquard looms maintained since the xixth century.

The workshop handles horse hair, sisal, linen and cotton.
