That certainly applies to all manufactories, whether they make culinary specialities, made-to-measure clothing, fine porcelain, handmade bags, spectacle frames, shaving brushes or writing utensils. Just how wide the range of handicraft businesses is, is made clear by the German Manufactory Road amongst other things. And this trip into the world of craftsmanship by no means ends at the national borders. In Austria, for example, the “Meisterstrasse” (Masters’ Road) runs through the workshops of centuries-old purveyors to the royal court, well-known luxury producers and small handicraft businesses. In Italy, the island of Murano is world-famous for its unique vases, jewellery and glass sculptures, which to this day are made by hand, whilst Naples is seen as the Eldorado of made-to-measure suits. France, on the other hand, stands for haute couture not only in the fashion industry: in the traditional porcelain town of Limoges, small manufactories produce extraordinary cups, plates, vases and bowls. Made with creativity and skilled craftsmanship for all those who love something special.
