Elbeuf sur Seine is located between hills covered by forests and the left bank of the Seine River and was built around the Saint-Etienne Church and the Puchot stream.
Its clear and soft water is said to be at the origins of the Elbeuf Woolen, a deluxe wool material appreciated by the Aristocracy and the couturiers.
The cloth manufaturing has settled there since the end of the 15th century and booms during the Industrial Revolution thanks to the new colored creations.
