retour La Manufacture Bohin

 

Manufacture Bonhin - Saint-Sulpice-sur-RisleBOHIN France, situated in Saint-Sulpice-sur-Risle, near L’Aigle in Normandy, has a history of over 185 years manufacturing pins and needles. Situated on the banks of the River Risle, the site is steeped in history and is a veritable showcase for French know-how and industrial heritage. Bohin invites you to explore its surprising 2,500 m² original factory workshops and admire the talent of skilled craftsmen and women at work.

 

You can visit the two floors of the factory’s production line and watch employees working on sewing needle, safety pin and Murano-glass-headed pin manufacturing! Employees use the old factory floor machines, some of which date from the 19th Century. You can get a good view because only a safety barrier separates you from the workers.

 

There is also a large contemporary museum dedicated to needlework-related professions (haute couture, patchwork, embroidery … as well as bookbinding, sailmaking and taxidermy), the history of small-scale metallurgy in the region, the origins and development of the pins and needles industry, the life of Benjamin Bohin (atypical founder of the company), vintage advertisements, other exceptional companies in the same sector, and artists and artistic trends that have made creative use of Bohin needles.

 

Temporary exhibitions are also organised and there is a fabulous gift shop for Bohin fans and tourists alike!
