Discover all the know-how of Maison Poursin on September 19 and 20, 2020 for European Heritage Days. Enjoy exclusive guided tours of the workshops of this brass factory providing the greatest tanners. By booking only.

Maison Poursin is the oldest Parisian manufacture still working and specialized in fastening and copper work. The story of this family business dates all the way back to 1830. After being specialized for a long time in saddlery items and harnesses, it extended its know-how to top of the range leather goods. For European Heritage Days, discover the creation secrets of these exceptional craftsmen and women.

Meet on Saturday September 19 and Sunday 20, 2020 at 11:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. for two guided tours of the workshops for 1h30. A wonderful family outing open to children from 8 years old. And of course, it is free of charge, but you must book by emailing this address. Careful though, because of the health crisis, groups are limited to 15 people, so hurry up and book!

Still today, brass wire bending, stamping, assembly, silver weld and the different finish are made like yesteryear, by hand, within the factory set on rue des Vinaigriers. This family know-how will delight children and adults for sure.
