Xavier Bertrand, president of the Hauts de France region, came to Maisons de Mode at 62 Rue du Faubourg des Postes in Lille to meet the Colonel Moutarde team personally. The visit was for France’s National Week of Craftsmanship, and also to congratulate Le Colonel Moutarde for winning the Export CCI award.
This occasion allowed the regional president to discover what happens behind the scenes of a small/medium-sized business that delivers bow ties daily to all four corners of the world and also supplies 30 points of sale, including the brand’s three boutiques in Lille, Paris, and London. A true success story that the politician could witness during his visit.
