HVAF Hosting Sponsor Christofle, has been creating, producing, and selling silver objects in the time-honored tradition of silversmithing, inspired by contemporary way of life since 1830. The brand nurtures the “Art of Sharing” through five universes: getting together for a meal, talking over drinks around the bar, adding a touch of beauty through decoration, offering jewelry and accessories as a gift, and enjoying moments to celebrate children.
