Who are we?

Our manifesto

Exiled people encounter multiple obstacles to their inclusion in France: language barrier, social exclusion, systematic professional downgrading, etc.

Our asylum system is flawed: slow procedures, waste of talent, ghettoization of facilities, etc. 

Territories and industries are weakening and encounter difficulties: loss of know-how, lack of social links, need for labour, etc. 

The welcoming of exiled people is unworthy of us, the needs of the local economy remain little or poorly covered and push us to act. 

Tissu Solidaire's mission is to accelerate the inclusion of exiled people through the valorization of manual know-how and to promote their return to employment in the textile industry.

As humanists, we offer tools for the inclusion of exiled people in the host society. As realists, we choose to respond to the needs of the textile industry by positioning ourselves as a trusted third party. 

Our Dream

We dream of an inclusive and welcoming society in which exiled and resident people weave together the history of their territory.

Our Mission

Tissu Solidaire accelerates the inclusion of people in exile by promoting manual skills and encouraging a return to employment in the textile industry.

Our History

In September 2015, Flora Vidal Marron came back to Lyon after 18 months abroad. 

After a lot of indignation and research, she notices that only 12% of refugees have a connection with a host citizen. 

With Caroline and Elise, met at the IAE of Lyon, they perform a needs study in the asylum center of a suburban area in Lyon.

There, they realise that sewing is craftsmanship mastered by newcomers and that it can become a wonderful tool of social mediation. 

And the Tissu Solidaire was born.
