Dear Partner,



We do hope you, your family and your teams are safe and in good health.

Never has sharing time and special moments with our families and loved ones been so important, and this will for sure remain for a long time.


This month of May 2020 looks like a new start for all of us in Christofle! We restarted our manufacture in Yainville and our boutiques are progressively reopening to welcome our clients.  While many things have changed due to implementation of social distancing and safety measures, I’m pleased to let you know that all our employees are extremely enthusiastic to come back to work and do what we are here for: serve our clients.


The pandemic is still evolving globally, and we sincerely hope you are also – or will soon be able to - moving forward and resuming your business.


As your partner we are here to support you and look forward to sharing ideas and solutions that could help you rebound faster.  Our sales and marketing teams are keen to reconnect with you and have prepared commercial actions and assets to review with you.


We thank you for your continuous trust and partnership.


Stay safe and stay healthy!

Dear customers,

As you all know Europe has been hit by the covid-19 virus.
The Hermès Group has made the decision to close all the factories as per today. Only the fragrance factory will remain opened to produce some hydroalcoholic gel.

Therefore Saint-Louis factory is now closed for two weeks time. However, the customer service department and the International Commercial team will remain at your disposal anytime.

Of course you can continue to place orders even if the production will be delayed by at least 2 weeks.

I thank you for your understanding and your support. We will, of course, keep you informed of the evolution of the situation.


Yours sincerely,

Charles-Henri LEROY

Dear Customers and friends,


Unfortunately, here in Italy, from today until April 3rd the government has forced the shut down of all the factories. 

We are really sad, our work is our oxygen and we hope we can get back to breathe again really fast.  

Despite our production is closed, I wanted to let you know that we are committed to continuing our work with dedication in order to guarantee our customer and commercial services. The customer care and commercial team will be there for any inquiry or need. 

Thank you for your cooperation and friendship. Let's all be safe.
A big hug from Italy,
Enrico Zanetto and the team
