This year once again, from 5 to 14 September 2019, Paris will move to the beat of creativity for the 9th edition of Paris Design Week. Over ten days, the general public and French and foreign professionals are invited to discover the finest design companies in Paris. There are some fifteen companies with excellence in expertise that hold the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (“living heritage”) label to be discovered along this visitor itinerary. This event is held in conjunction with the Maison&Objet exhibition, where several EPV companies will also be featuring.
Two episodes of the Chinese programme "A World of Excellence" produced by Hantang Culture and focussing on the EPV label, were broadcast in June 2019 on 46 TV channels in China and on seven Chinese airlines. The Chinese film crew came to film the EPV companies Velours de Lyon, Dutel, Prelle, Au ver à soie, Tassinari & Chatel, Passementerie Verrier, as well as Romain Alès, President of EPV labeling commission and Alexis Govciyan, director of the Institut Supérieur des Métiers, in order to highlight this state label dedicated to French excellence.
