Marie Daage heads the company that bears her name and creates
beautiful hand painted porcelain in Limoges, France.
Marie believes that the image and style of French goods
goes hand in hand with where they are made.
She also believes that clients love to purchase items
that have meaning or a story behind them.
And, when goods are partially fabricated off-shore
the unique qualities inherent to the region or country, are lost.
An advocate for preserving family business and traditional craftsmanship,
Marie Daage supports Development Durable –
a French initiative for sustainable production of goods made by families
who have learned their trades and traditions over generations.
Marie truely believes in the importance of sustaining the trades
and the positive impact these traditions have on the social environment
as well as the economy.
In recognition for her efforts to preserve a national heritage,
she was awarded the Legion of Honor in 2012.
