Repetto, Hermès, La Coutellerie Nontronnaise - our local business's invest in design

Our local business's are committed investors in design and innovation. Repetto, in our town, €50 million t/o, 50 boutiques around the world, has extended its production plant to triple production. (+38% since 2002). 150 new staff hired and a school of leather craftsmanship opened this year.
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!
