Depuis 173 ans, la Maison Dormeuil n’a de cesse de créer de nouveaux tissus d’exception qui font sa réputation en capitalisant sur la qualité anglaise et l’innovation. Dormeuil apporte une attention particulière à chacun de ses tissus et est fier de l’excellence qui caractérise ses créations les plus prestigieuses. Il reste pionnier dans la fabrication de tissus et le mariage de fibres exceptionnelles, rares et évidemment naturelles.

« A la recherche des laine précieuses » est le livre de Dominique Dormeuil en collaboration avec le photographe Jean-Baptiste Rabouan pour rendre hommage aux éleveurs et artisans de la laine.
