In 1825, when a small local boss, Antoine Chapon, boss of a small mechanical spinning mill and peddler, observed a weaver in Moulins who was using a weft of rags.

He therefore had the idea of using from scraps, fraying, textile waste to make a weft strong enough to be woven, this inexpensive raw material suited the large population of Cours and its region. With this, Antoine Chapon handcrafted the first "GRISON" blankets in Cotton or Wool and Cotton.

These cardoons are spun at home by the women, using a rudimentary device called a "rounder" which managed to extract an embryo of threads, then from the spinning wheel.

-Jeannette's loom soon replaced the spinning wheel to spin this weft because it could take 20 ends instead of just one.

-Small children (rapondeurs) are used to tie the spun cardoons which are then woven.

-Following this, 4 to 5 Families will use this process and will be the starting point for nearly 20 Manufacturers in the COURS region.

In the first third of the 20th century, Cours was called the national, if not the world, capital of blanket manufacturing. A generous slogan, "Course covers the world" illustrates this point.

But some factories, shaken by repeated strikes, especially in 1931, will begin to disappear. Despite the immediate post-war economic boom and the so-called "glorious" years, the roofing industry collapsed from 1960.

But, new industries, in particular metalwork, have reconnected with the ancestral know-how of the coursiaude industry.
