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.

Made in Metz. A graduate from the Institut de Commerce de Nancy (ICN Business School), where he attended a cross-disciplinary management program dedicated to the luxury industry, he initiated a study as part of his master’s thesis on the role of craftsmanship in this specific sector and its ability to contribute to the emergence of new production systems. It is when working at the Institut National des Métiers d’Art that he discovered the true wealth of the French heritage. He now wishes to educate the public about local know-how from all over the world and their cultural roots, through a selection of diverse projects in the fields of fashion, design and art.
