Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

French craftsmanship is unparalleled in the world. Baccarat crystal. Limoges porcelain. The historic patterns of Toile de Jouy. Scented gloves and custom-made umbrellas in Paris. The prized digestifs, Armagnac and Cognac. Laura Morelli, author of Made in Italy, has created the first guide devoted solely to Frances handmade goods. Organized by region, with one chapter devoted solely to Paris, Made in France takes the reader on a complete tour of the dazzling artisanal legacy of France, uncovering one-of-a-kind hidden workshops and off-the-beaten-path destinations, like the exquisite lingerie boutique, Cadolle, in Paris (the owner of which descends from Herminie Cadolle, the woman who invented the brassiere), or Lyon, Frances best-kept secret.Made in France includes advice on how, what, and where to buy, featuring a special primer on French shopping, hints on recognizing quality and authenticity, and a calendar of craft festivals throughout the year.
