Butzon & Bercker in Kevelaer, Germany, is a family business now being personally managed by the fifth generation. Franz-Hermann Bercker began in November 1870 with an artisanal bookbindery that has now developed after more than 140 years into a company offering books, art, cards, and bronze gifts — all symbols firmly rooted in the Christian tradition.
Christian art and religious handicrafts have a long tradition at the nearby pilgrimage site of the Gnadenkapelle (Chapel of Grace) of Kevelaer. The Butzon & Bercker art workshops program now ranges from bronze crosses to Christmas nativities and comprises a total of more than 4,500 religious articles.
