LVMH Métiers d’Art

Transmission & Savoir-faire

In order to protect and develop our Fashion & Leather Goods Houses' access to the raw materials and superior savoir-faire they require, LVMH Métiers d'Art provides long-term investment and support for its best suppliers.

With its partner suppliers, LVMH Métiers d’Art implements a comprehensive sustainable development strategy: in the sourcing of quality, raw materials (often rare or increasingly scarce) and in enriching the transmission of savoir-faire (at times traditional, unique and specific to our industry).

Beyond this, and in line with the Group’s values, LVMH Métiers d’Art sharpens artisan creativity and innovation in all its forms, through shared projects, exchanges between “métiers” and external partnerships.

In this way, within the leather “métiers”, LVMH Métiers d’Art joined forces with the Koh brothers in order to develop the Heng Long tannery in Singapore. Founded in 1950, it is now the leader in the tanning of crocodile hides. In 2012, LVMH acquired the Roux Tanneries, one of the last remaining French tanneries specialized in tanning calf hides, founded in 1803.

In 2015 LVMH acquired a stake in the Spanish tannery Riba-Guixà, a leading specialist in Entrefino lambskin processing.
