What is the savoir-faire of the Aveyron?
The Aveyron is a département marked by the history, traditions and savoir-faire of its ancestral crafts. But its artisans don't simply reproduce objects from the past, quite the contrary!
Knife-makers (knives of Laguiole and Sauveterre), luxury glove makers, leather workers and tanners (Causse Gantier), and the clothing industry are some of the main activities in the Aveyron based on long traditions and diversified savoir-faire.
In the food sector too, the savoir-faire is expressed through the production of cheese, wine and other local specialities.
Several companies in the Aveyron open their doors to visitors wishing to discover the artisanal techniques. From the knife-makers in Laguiole to the glove-makers in Millau, from cheese cooperatives to wine-makers: make the most of your holiday by discovering ancestral savoir-faire.
