Ardelaine: the adventure of a textile cooperative serving the local development of the Ardèche - by Béatrice Barras[Proceedings] by Beatrice Barras


Beatrice Barras was born in 1950 and got a training of speech therapist. She is a founding member of the textile cooperative Ardelaine, that was created in 1982 so as to foster the development of the Ardèche.

Beatrice Barras relates the story of Ardelaine, which is a workers’ cooperative that she contributed to create. One of the main objectives of Ardelaine is to foster the development of a rural territory through the exploitation of a local textile industry. Indeed, it seems that, in spite of globalization, that traditional know-how and production are definitely not condemned.
