Hermès workshops in Nontron, just up the road from here, are where the Kelly and Birkin handbags are made. Also in Nontron, CWD saddlery, No.1 in France and a world market leader, equips the French London Olympics winning team.
And La Coutellerie Nontronnaise makes its famous knives in its Philippe Starck & Luc Arsène-Henri designed workshops.
Designed in the Sud-Ouest is an overwhelming success!

The old cubic thing was really just a joke. So 60's, so unrelated to an upmarket department store, so 'heavy construction company'... so irrelevant! It amazed me every day I went past it. Just very disappointing to see that the new identity by Publicis Royalties is so characterless, bland and 'passe partout', it could be used for anything and it says absolutely nothing about the very unique BHV. Shame, a missed opportunity.
