Episode 3 - Anne and Charlotte, the Dao customers

Our French manufacturing would not make sense if there was no one at the other end of the chain to touch, discover and acquire our clothes. By being with you every day in store, we realized that you all had a privileged relationship with ourWorkshop-Boutique du 5 rue Saint Nicolas in Nancy.

"Select local clothes every day"

Anne and Charlotte, two historic houses of the house, lent themselves to the game of the camera to tell us what they do concretely every day to buy French. Proximity, quality and know-how are for them the watchwords of Made in France. They show us that change begins with oneself and that buying in short circuits is more obvious than it seems.

With his looms dating from the 1920s to the 80s, he made hundreds of meters of fabrics every day. And it is thanks to him that the first French Selvedge was able to be marketed in France.
