At Homo Faber, Luxury Craftspeople from Hermes, Mont Blanc Show The Value of Hand-Produced Crafts

He underscored the difficult realities of an artisan making a handmade product, and emphasized the need for more mutual respect. This exhibition, grandeur and luxury aside, was a way to beseech the public to save a luxury industry under threat.
