NEW YORK — The art of textile manufacturing might not be what it used to be, but it’s still flourishing at Bucol, a fixture in France’s silk capital, Lyon.
The silk mill, part of Holding Textiles Hermès group, is a rare bird. In an industry flooded with consolidations and bankruptcies, Bucol has managed to transform itself from a manufacturer of classic silks exclusively for couture to a present-day leader in silk jacquards, satins and taffetas for the broader market.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
