Visit the gardens of Saint-Louis
The presence of natural resources determined the installation in 1586 of the ancestor of the Saint-Louis Crystal Glassworks. Water was used all through the workshops and still accompanies craftsmen today in each step of the crystal-making process: washing tools, cooling molds, preventing the warming of cutting wheels, polishing crystal. Water has a crucial role to play!
The gardens of Saint-Louis
Today the manufacture is the only crystal glassworks in the world to use a process consisting in exploiting the depolluting capacities of some plants and minerals to treat this resource. At the end of this exhausting way through the workshops, the gardens of Saint-Louis look after each drop of water that comes out of the manufacture, so that each of them can calmly go on all through the valleys of Vosges, to live the great adventure of the cycle of water!
