Le Journal du textile a consacré une parution au lancement de l’association Faber Lambert crée par Lambert + Associates. Cette association a pour but de promouvoir et valoriser les métiers rares en région, préserver la transmission du savoir-faire des métiers d’art. Faber Lambert mettra à disposition des artisans et des jeunes professionnels en stage de perfectionnement, les outils nécessaires en termes de communication, gestion et management d’une part. De l’autre, elle mettra à disposition des artisans, l’expertise de Lambert + Associates afin de les accompagner sur le marché international comme suit:

Mise à disposition d’une Market Representative qui suivra toutes les étapes sur une période d’un an dès la première présentation du produit à L+A jusqu’à celle auprès du client. Tout au long de l’année, elle apportera attention et conseils nécessaires dans l’obtention de voir se réaliser la vente du produit.

Les conseils porteront sur :

  1. La créativité
  2. La qualité
  3. La finition/matière/toucher (notamment dans le cas du papier ou du textile)
  4. Le positionnement
  5. La production qui devra être d’un minimum de 6 produits
  6. Le prix unitaire
  7. Les délais de production
  8. Le nombre de personne travaillant à l’atelier avec l’artisan ou si il est seul
  9. La/les production(s) antérieure(s)

Par ailleurs, l’association crée les soutiens “Nouvelle Tradition” qui feront l’objet d’un appel à projets dans une région définie. Les soutiens seront remis lors d’un événement annuel. Ils sont composés d’une “Aide aux Métiers Rares” de 30 000 euros destinée à l’artisan pour développer un projet innovant dans le respect de la tradition du savoir-faire.

Une bourse “Nouvelle Tradition” de 15 000 euros sera remise au jeune professionnel en devenir qui aura choisi son maître et le projet  d’apporter innovation dans le respect du développement durable.

Les grands ateliers de France se sont associés à Faber Lambert dont le comité de pilotage est constitué de personnalités issues de l’univers des métiers d’art.

L’appel à projets est prévu fin septembre 2014.

Nous vous invitons à visiter le site Faber Lambert et venir à la rencontre des artisans sur sa page Facebook !
