I know many of you will be making your annual pilgrimage to Paris for the wonderful L'Aiguille en Fete which runs 9-12 February this year. What you may not know is that every year around this time to celebrate les Journées du Patrimoine, Au Ver à Soie hold an evening event in their showrooms in the rue Réamur. The showrooms are normally closed to the public, but to celebrate AVAS receiving the Enterprise du Patrimonie Vivant label in 2009, they are opened especially for this event. Au Ver à Soie was founded in 1820 and has remained in the family through 5 generations since then - today it is in the capable hands of Marc Boucher and his sister Nathalie Bothorel-Boucher.
