A small company that carries on the woodworking tradition of the Valle d’Aosta. This tradition is respected not only in the techniques used in the workshop, found in the village of Introd, but also in the objects produced: Les Amis du Bois is, in fact, specialized in making wooden objects and, in particular, in the production of wooden chalices and friendship cups, two of the symbols of Valle d'Aosta’s handicraft culture. Not surprisingly, as well as selling these objects in its shop, Les Amis du Bois also supplies its products to IVAT (Istituto Valdostano Artigianato Tipico), an institution promoting the work of local craftsmen.
