On the 30th of November 2021, at the Paprec Group company in La Courneuve, we were awarded the First Prize ex-aequo of the Geste d'Or - Heritech for our project of bobbin lace's revalorization named 'Dentellation'.
The objective of this project is to bring together bobbin lace from Le Puy-en-Velay, an intangible heritage, and the latest innovative technologies in order to enhance and preserve this traditional know-how.
Today, it is a question of taking a new step by proposing the creation of the Cité Mondiale de la dentelle within the town of Le Puy-en-Velay. It is the creative and productive hub of the textile industry in Haute Loire, based on the triptych of innovation, local industrial production and applied arts.
A big thank you to Le Geste d'Or for awarding us this first prize and to the Sunidéo team for accompanying us since Héritech forum.
We would also like to congratulate the start-up Mercurio for their award. 👏
Dentellation is a collaboration between Fontanille Scop, the University of Clermont Auvergne with Adelaïde Albouy-Kissi, lecturer in applied computer science and Julie Agrain, designer.
