Meet with Maud Lescroart - Marketing director of the house Sophie Hallette

His grandfather, Etienne Lescroart, had the great idea to buy back the lace factory Hallette in the 40s. Since then, Maud Lescroart and his family continue the craftsmanship of lace, from the sketch drawings, to the creation and manufacturing of the lace. Become a benchmark, the house Sophie Hallette now provides for the whole world, for example, Alexander McQueen and his famous lace worn by Kate Middleton on her wedding day with Prince William.

Maud Lescroart : Mr. Eugene Hallette founded the company in the late nineteenth century, but the Lescroart family, therefore my grandfather bought the company off the widow of Mr. Hallette in the forties, and we today are the third generation at the head of the company. It is based in Caudry, a town of thirteen thousand inhabitants, in the north of France.
The house Sophie Hallette is at the origin of all its collections, all the drawings of lace. Skill is found at all the different levels of manufacturing of the lace. Both in our drawing office, since it takes about 2 months to complete a lace design without incident. Until the mending, and final finishing touches of lace, of course, passing through the Leavers production, since it takes seven years, on average, to form the tulle specialists that will be working on this famous Leavers craftsmanship.
We exist in over sixty countries around the world and we export more than eighty five percent of our turnover. We are susceptible to external trends and external influences, but despite that, we do not deny our French roots. French lace, is already the vehicle of French taste and since it has existed for over a century, it is true that we have amassed a culture, a knowledge which is very marked by this French know-how and French taste. So I think the lace also embodies these values.
