The current manager represents the 4th generation of a family of clog-makes which used to be located in La Bresse, in a neighbouring valley. The workshop makes walking clogs for men and women in standard sizes and decorative clogs in standard or miniature sizes.

The workshop carries out all manufacturing operations: selection, storage, maintenance and cutting of wood, shaping (hollowing), finishing (decorating and varnishing).  Clog-making is a long operation that requires around one hour per pair and involves a complex step that demands experience and skill: hollowing.

Almost all of the clogs made are sold to individual customers in the region and tourists who buy decorative clogs after learning about the know-how of the craftsmen.
