Baccarat,  which has the quality label « Ville et Métiers d’Art »


Baccarat is located in the center of many traditionally-made territories. The city is internationally recognized thanks to the excellent image of its famous product which is the Crystal and its 24 French Best Workers. Baccarat has become an ambassador of glass-making activities since the creation of the Saint-Anne glasswork in the 18th Century. Moreover, its cultural heritage has been enhanced by the new Pôle Bijou which proposes temporary exhibitions of the world famous designers. Lastly, the exceptional contemporary church (the saint Remy church) and its stained-glass windows in Baccarat’s Crystal make the city very attractive.

The Baccarat Development association in partnership with Baccarat promotes exceptional and regional skills which were passed down from generation to generation for centuries. Therefore the International Festival of Craft Industry, organized every two years since 2010, becomes a crucial meeting. Baccarat is seen as a city of traditional art with strong heritage and focused on contemporary creation. Thus Baccarat is a strategic stage in order to discover craft industry on our territory.
