This film was shot in Malines, the craftwork centre of Belgium.

It first deals with the crafts of low-warp tapestry, then tackles furniture and the copying of medieval, Flemish Renaissance and English models.
The documentary part about fabrication is followed by many still shots showing, in the manner of a catalogue, the craftsmen’s creations.
