What is the "Label Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant" or Living Heritage Company Label?

The Label Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV) is a recognition awarded by the state to companies with exceptional industrial and/or artisanal know-how and producing in France.

It was in December 2016 that we had the privilege of obtaining this distinction for our unique craftsmanship and our commitment to transmitting it. The EPV label is also the certification of French manufacturing, of a balance between innovation and tradition and of high performance in our profession of leather goods.

When you buy an Ateliers Fourès product, you are buying an EPV-labelled product, an artisanal product, made in France, with rare know-how.

This recognition is the consecration of our investment in offering you quality products that respect our values ​​of reasoned production and transmission of local heritage.
We also work as soon as possible with EPV-certified companies because we know that they respect these same values. We currently have 4 EPV-certified suppliers.

Know that we are audited every 5 years to renew our label. It is for you the guarantee that we do not change our way of manufacturing, that we continue to do everything in France and in an artisanal way.

To find out more about this label, you can go to the government website or the National Institute of Crafts website .
