Among those crafts, the ceramics industry has been  preserved and promoted by the community of cities of the Herault Valley  thanks to  Argileum in Saint-Jean-de-Fos,  village of potters since the Middle ages, cradle of the characteristic  glazed terracotta ,and  around which , twenty  potters still work nowadays.

 

Stone cutters, jewellery  designers , leather craftsmen,  cutlers , also contribute to the Herault Valley ‘s activity, at the very heart of its tourism, economic, and cultural policies.
