Le Grand Atelier, a pop-up shop devoted to the French artisanal tradition, will showcase the finest products in food, interior decoration and design at Harrods, from 3 to 29 June 2013. The companies selected by the luxury department store, which all have the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV or Living Heritage Company) label, will showcase their high-end products in the heart of London (UK) for nearly a month.
This large-scale initiative, will promote traditional French craftsmanship throughout Harrods, in London, from 2 to 29 June of this year.
Both Harrods’ showcases, which look onto Brompton Road, and the Food Hall will be arranged in order to display the luxury products from 34 French artisanal producers and designers specialising either in the food sector or in decorative goods.
The high-end products to be displayed in the Food Hall are made from top-quality natural ingredients, using ancestral methods. The event will give members of the trade and media the opportunity to discover unique products from various French regions, such as Calissons from Aix-en-Provence (in South-Eastern France), Biscuits Roses de Reims (in Champagne), or charcuterie from Ardèche (in Southern France).
The French products from high-end interior-design companies to be displayed will include handmade snowboards, pewter home accessories, restored antique furniture and bronze decorative objects.
