Address La Filature 86240 Ligugé, France

La Filature in Ligugé is an old textile factory created in 1856. Locally called “l’Usine”, it was for a long time the second largest company in the Vienne.

In 1856, a spinning mill specialized in hemp, linen and jute was established in Ligugé. It quickly developed into the second largest company in the Vienne region with 200 to 300 employees, behind the Châtellerault factory.

In 1950, “l’Usine” (the local name for La Filature) developed its activity by offering cardboard packaging for products (notably yoghurt pots and camembert boxes). In 1976, the site closes its doors after 120 years of activity.

In 2011, the 2 hectares are officially owned by the association AY128 which rehabilitates the former spinning mill into a creative and productive workspace. In 2017, 20 companies are installed on the Usines Nouvelles site.
