Les Belles Centenaires de Picardie

30,00 €

Old tradition, companies have established themselves in Picardy. Depending on its soil, sugar, flax, chemical or agro-food industries. Or its history. Colbert founded the manufactories there, tapestry to Beauvais, glass to Saint-Gobain. Louis XVI orders locks at Vimeu. The palaces of the Ancien Régime bring their trimmings from Declercq. La Brosse & Dupont supplies the leading cosmetics brands, Pochet du Courval makes flasks for great perfumers, Hubert de Givenchy establishes its perfume factory there; his preface shows his attachment to the region.
