Declercq Passementiers' story began in 1852 with a small trimmings factory. Generations of craftspeople have handed down their expertise and ancestral techniques, perpetuating the refined traditions of a craft that has become rare. Jérôme and Elisa Declercq represent the sixth generation of this family of trim makers and still work according to these traditional craft techniques: they joined their father in the family company, which became Declercq Passementiers in 1996.
Today, museums and historic castles under renovation rely on Declercq Passementiers' expertise to reproduce trimmings of exceptional intricacy and beauty. The production of trimmings is very complex and several different structural techniques are used in the creation of a single item. Declercq Passementiers has always made trimmings of the highest quality and has preserved the ancient techniques while constantly innovating its methods and designs.
