Eric Alexandre at work

Eric and Marina Alexandre welcome visitors looking for an authentic experience at the crossroads between craft and tourism.

For a weekend, the hosts can inhale the air of the mountain mixed with the smell of leather. Nearby their guestrooms, holiday-makers can discover the tools, the gestures and the know-how to witness how the couple’s creations are locally made. Eric and Marina are also offering week-long workshops and trainings to manipulate leather.

Atelier du Mouscaillou took part in the Made in Town / Montagne Noire exhibition, which was held from October 21, 2015 to February 13, 2016 at Made in Town in Paris.
