Alsatrucs, but what does this strange name mean? It is a range of objects created and realized by about twenty Alsatian craftsmen gathered within a collective. The basic idea of Alsatrucs is to give back to local crafts the place they deserve during the famous Christmas markets in Alsace. The Alsatrucs are thus handcrafted creations inspired by the Alsatian culture and traditions, revisiting them with a nice touch of modernity.
I stumbled upon the Alsatrucs stand in the Christmas market of the Place Broglie in Strasbourg and fell in love with it! The objects are really original and combine marvelously tradition and modernity: rocking pretzel, salad servers inspired by the Alsatian furniture, candlestick in the shape of kougelhopf, coat hook in the shape of bottles of Alsatian wine… The creativity of the artisans is impressive! Moreover, all the objects are 100% created and manufactured in Alsace, ecoresponsible and the prices remain reasonable. What more could you ask for?
It is possible to buy Alsatrucs at the Christmas market in Strasbourg, at the Salon Résonances and on their online store.
