Manufacto is a new program from the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès: a skills factory aimed at raising young people’s awareness of opportunities in artisan trades. Started in 2016, craftsmen work in classes with pupils from elementary schools, secondary and high schools and introduce participants to the world of artisanship, its raw materials, expertise, and the culture of the fine, hand-crafted object.
For Manufacto, we have designed the objects produced in classes by the students, in partnership with the craftsmen.
