Lace of Le Puy-en-Velay
What to buy: Pauline has a serious interest in textile crafts, so it was certain that she would want a sample of Le Puy lace. From what I can gather, the lace industry “dentelle” now operates only for the tourist market, but samples are readily purchased. The attached photo is actually a scan of the sample which she purchased.
From quite a different shop, I purchased a bottle of the local liqueur called Verveine du Velay. It is made from a blend of 32 local herbs (naturally, to a secret recipe). Much as I’d like to show a photo, it was necessary to test it from time to time to see how well it kept – and now it’s gone! It is a light greenish straw colour, with a slightly sweet herbal flavour.
What to pay: How much to pay? That depends on the amount and quality – in both cases!
Directions: Le Puy shops for the lace, the Pages distillery (in Le Puy) for the Verveine du Velay.
