Fine Craft in Cévennes

Traditional skills of fine crafts through demanding and innovative know-how (painting on silk – wood-work and sculpting – jewellery and silversmithery).

  • Natural silk
  • Local precious wood
  • Precious and semi-precious stones
  • Precious metal

Crafted in the constant inspired combination of these.

Our creativity, often inspired by natural forms, is constantly renewed. Each piece is either unique or part of a limited series and with each year spring new models.

A meticulous finish is the key to the quality of the models we propose : fine buffing – setting – wood finish – hand-sewing
