Michel Adam, a philosophy teacher with a passionate interest in leather, founded "Les Ateliers du Charri” in the Belfort region in 1974.
When he was posted to Réunion in 1985 he managed to cope with both activities, making hand-sewn bags for doctors and representatives.
Since 2008, the MOULIN de MONTFERNEY in the Doubs region (post code 25680 ROUGEMONT) where Michel’s wife runs 5 bed and breakfast rooms (www.moulindemontferney.com) have been home to the workshops which continue to grow and have been modernised to meet the increasing demand from lovers of French hand-crafted real leather goods.
The workshops can be visited every morning at 9.15 from 15th April to 15th October, together with the micro hydroelectric power plant on the river Ognon renovated by Geneviève et Michel.
Telephone booking on +33 (0)3 81 50 46 75 or by e-mail at email@example.com
For other times or for requests for group tours, please contact the craftsman.
Michel Adam, a qualified saddler and leather craftsman, holds leatherwork training courses for school children or adults as part of their studies or those currently retraining.
The craftsman also organises leisure courses for all. Accommodation possible on-site in the Moulin de Montferney guest rooms.
Michel’s 40 years in leatherwork have given him sound know-how and isn’t that worth boasting about?
