An antidote to Standardization
In parallel of the Première Vision trade show and its space Maison d'Exceptions dedicated to textile producers and suppliers, a rendez-vous featuring traditional or innovative exceptional productions, the maisondexceptions.com magazine is a unique online platform which extends the trade show experience and offers a true antidote to standardization.
Fashion and textiles, heritage, innovation, education, so many keys to address the richness and diversity of textiles know-how from France and worldwide. The magazine offers a journey through the ages and continents, uncovering ancient, popular and contemporary techniques, for a full and informed exploration of textile design.
Made in Town is in charge for all the editorial guidelines of the magazine, publishing each week new exclusive content, punctuating it with articles, pictures and videos. The various publications take interest in activities of craftsmen, textile suppliers, fashion houses, designers, museums and artists, all committed to the excellence and diversity of textile craft.
