Thiviers: luxury brands teach the “French know how” in order to keep the production in France

Nowadays, it is hard to find qualified people who can work the leather. That is why, 13 brands (including Hermès and Repetto) decided to train young, french people to these jobs that no one does anymore. They created the “Pôle d’excellence aquitain des métiers du cuir et du luxe”, which opened at the end of September 2014 in Thiviers.

The aim of this specific « school » is to provide to unemployed person the chance to be involved in the production process of iconic brands. It is a great opportunity for French brands to keep their production in France, and to teach themselves all the different techniques specific to the brand. For unemployed person, it is a chance to change and to be a part of French success stories.
