The third stop on the itinerant exhibition The Lace Review, which brings together the last 14 Leavers lace factories still in operation in Calais and Caudry, takes place on 16 and 17 July 2019 during the Première Vision exhibition in New York.
The Lace Review exposes to the public the technical specificities that make the richness and uniqueness of this essential material in the fields of fashion and lingerie. A true cultural exception, Leavers lace weaving technique combines elegance, engineering and creativity. The City of Calais and Made in Town will present an unpublished book that reveals the unique gestures, crafts and know-how of this luxury lace.
L’Atelier du Relieur has been in the bookbinding, cardboarding, goldplating, and restoration business since 2009, extending its services to private and professional customers alike.
Made in Town welcomes De Bonne Facture for the presentation of a series of models which cast light on the know-how of the French artisans and producers who created them.
In order to promote the know-how and the characteristics of La Rochère glass factory, located in Passavant-la-Rochère in the French department of Haute-Saône, Made in Town conducted a series of four short videos shot in the heart of the company's workshops.
