The fédération des métiers d’art d’Alsace (frémaa) was created in 1996 by and for fine crafts professionals in Alsace who wanted to group together to promote their sector. Today, frémaa has over 180 members admitted by a jury on the basis of the quality of their applications.
As a professional organisation solidly anchored and recognized at regional level, it has been coordinating a programme for the development and promotion of fine crafts for the past 20 years. Its vocation is to promote, represent, defend and boost the economic development of professionals in the sector.
With this in mind, it organises numerous cultural, economic and training activities that are unanimously acknowledged for their quality, and for the real business opportunities they represent (exhibitions, trade fairs, publications, business stimulation, training, sectoral monitoring, etc.).
Thanks to its successful actions, frémaa is helping to promote and develop the fine crafts sector.
Since 2012, it has been using the full range of its expertise and skills to organise the Résonance[s] fair that it initiated and created in Strasbourg.
Article 22 of Law n° 2014-626 dated 18th June 2014 relating to crafts, commerce and very small businesses provides a legal definition of fine crafts. According to this article: “those included in fine crafts are […] natural persons as well as the directors of legal entities who carry out, on a principal or secondary basis, an independent activity consisting in the production, creation, transformation, reconstruction, repair or restoration of heritage characterized by their mastery of gestures and techniques with a view to working with materials in an artistic way.”
