Artisans in Provence Le Savoir Faire des Alpilles

Showcasing Alpilles Craftsmanship

It could only be serendipity that Le Savoir Faire des Alpilles, a boutique showcasing the designs of local artisans, is across the street from the administrative offices of the Parc Naturel Régional des Alpilles. Both groups actively promote the beauty, traditions and natural environment of the small chain of mountains called les Alpilles.

Artisans Provence Alpilles Quality Products

Located in the centre of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence Le Savoir Faire des Alpilles is a bright, airy showroom representing the creations of about 15 artists and food producers who live in the Alpilles. The boutique opened three (3) years ago showcasing artwork, fashion accessories, home décor items, and gourmet food that is “100% Alpilles.”

Le Savoir Faire des Alpilles is an artists’ collective operated by the members of a local St-Rémy association by the same name. If you are looking for a unique gift for someone or a handcrafted reminder of your visit to the region, then this store should be on your list. The products are designed locally within the Alpilles.

The boutique feels like an art gallery, where the curated products highlight quality craftsmanship. At Le Savoir Faire des Alpilles items are displayed to showcase the work of each producer’s unique designs. There is no duplication in the merchandise which includes linens, lavender keepsakes, ceramics, olive wood creations, paintings, photography, blown glass, and gourmet foodstuffs. The best part? Purchase something from this boutique, and you are supporting local artisans and creators from Provence.
