Notre Marque

Alexandre de Paris
The Know-how

We made the choice of values as we refuse to relocate overseas. We wanted to keep what is best in our French culture: unique know-hows and rare skills.

Fabienne Bailly & Sébastien Bailly, Founders of Maison Alexandre de Paris

 

The Know-how

Working with heart and hands in the Manufacture and Couture Atelier

The know-how

Two workshops: Oyonnax and Paris

Carried by the talent of its craftsmen, some of them in the Maison for over 36 years, the brand's artisanal know-how favours the sense of detail and pervades the Jura manufacture with meticulousness at each stage of manufacturing. Likewise, the Parisian sewing workshop, fashioning headbands and textile accessories, meets the requirements of manual Haute-Couture finishes.

A thorough quality control

Recognizable by its golden A seal, each Alexandre de Paris hair accessory is certified Handmade in France. Its quality is ensured by a thorough quality control that includes sorting non-conforming parts, controlling the maintenance of pearls and crystals and verifying the proper functioning of the fastenings.

A know-how of excellence where Time rules

Many steps are often necessary to craft one single piece whose noble materials (acetate, crystal, silk, velvet, fur) are carefully outsourced in Europe only.

Blossom of a Camélia

No less than one full training year in the Manufacture and 8 steps are needed to bring to life one of Maison Alexandre de Paris iconic pieces, the Camélia, made from cellulose acetate, whose heart is embedded with Swarovski crystals: manual layering, semi-automatic cutting of the bicolour material, hot curving, old-fashioned polishing, in barrels during 48 hours, final hand polishing, crystals or pearls embedding and assembly of the petals on the A-sealed basis.
