Our textile collections are entirely made in France in a small workshop in Paris and a factory in Cambrai. When I launched lab. making the collection in France was obvious. I had in mind an internship in a textile factory in Normandy years ago and I immediatly tried to reach them to make my collections. Unfortunately, the factory had closed and it strengthened my will to give work to the ones that had "survived".
Our approach is ecological as well : by making the items in France, dying our custom-made shades in Parisian suburbs and makings our feather cushions near Auxerre, we want to preserve our local know-hows and jobs but also minimize energy and material waste.
We can also make unique items for everyone as well as for interior designers and architects. We can change the size of our items, change the fabric combinations, propose sleeping bags without paddings, longer or smaller cot bumpers, change de size of high chair pads...
We only propose very qualitative cottons and linens usually used for garments and associate real Liberty of London fabrics with wools by Danish brand Kvadrat, well know by the most famous architects and designers.
Our linen is yarn-dye in exclusive colours chosen for their perfect match with our Liberty of London fabrics and Farrow and Ball paints. There's no chance, the fabric loses its colour as it is directly dyed in the yarn. It is washed after to be as soft as cotton with the charm of vintage bedlinen. Don't iron it! It is beautiful precisely for this wrinkled aspect. Linen is more ecological than organic cotton! Grown mainly in Europe: France and The Netherlands, its farming is regulated. Linen is not a fragile fiber and therefore it spares water and needs no pesticides.
We are particularly careful about the making of the baby collection, in natural and soft fabrics with material of great quality. Our factory in Cambrai is the French specialist of sleeping bag and cot bumpers. Its very cosy and fireproof padding is made in Belgium in the respect of the strictest Euopean regulation.
We imagine an everyday decoration, useful and simple. Some items we propose are not made by us but are really our favourites and always tell a story about their making. We think it's better to have around us few but nice & true objects. Our colours are joyful and soft as a sunshine in the house.
I love the idea to do fashion for home, to change the cushions on our sofa as easily as we change our shirt, just to reflect our mood.
