Fleeing the revolts staged by the Canuts (silk workers) in the 19C, the silk industry moved to the Nord-Dauphiné region, where "Voiron cloth" had been produced for over two centuries.

The machinery still functions and can produce small pieces of work. A section is given over to tulle- and lace-making.
