Eric Devos

Founded 1985 in France
Based in Bourg-en-Bresse

Quality and tradition: two words that define Eric Devos Bottier.

Eric Devos set up his atelier in Bourg-en-Bresse, far from the stresses of big city life, in 1994, a deliberate decision the he hasn't regretted. He believes in combining quality of life and quality of work, and he practices his profession in the traditional ways, just as his elders did.

As you will discover by visiting his small workshop, he is a craftsman in the noble sense of the term, with limited production.
