Did you know that Caudry remains, with Calais, the only town in France where lace is still made. A lace museum has been opened in a former workshop in the town centre. In the 19th century Caudry started specializing in tulle and lace making. The first loom was installed in 1826 with parts smuggled from England. By 1913 there were some 650 looms employing several thousand workers. The population expanded from 1,926 in 1804 to 13,360 in 1911.
