The Royal Warrant Series: Atelier Mertens
Many of you know that Belgian is a Kingdom and as a result we have many Royal Warrant holders. These heritage brands supply the court with only the best of the best that Belgium has to offer. This summer the I Love Belgium team goes around and gives you an insight into some of these heritage brands. We discover how they got their royal stamp of approval and how the workshop of a Royal Warrant holder looks like. This week we visited silver repair workshop Mertens.
Atelier Mertens is a family run business based on excellence and tradition. Now on its fourth generation, Mertens is still being praised for its exquisite craft and dedication to perfection. For almost a century they have specialized in fabrication, restoration, repairs, and special services. With great precision for details, their craftsman work mostly on repairs and restoration for their clients. Today, each one is done by hand to ensure that the product looks as if there was never anything awry.
