Synopsis: Ever since the sixteenth century, French craftsmen, with their expertise, have have created the very essence of luxury. Who are these craftsmen today? Four artisans take us inside their world. With a great sense of humor and strong straightforwardness, they freely criticize the fashion industry. Made in France products that are not made in France, clients who don’t know what they buy… And every day, a more uncertain future for real luxury items: the craftsmen’s workshops are closing down one by one… Who will assure the making of Haute Couture if they are all gone?
