"What there is shall belong to those who are good for it"
Textiles and clothing mark every stage of our existence. They give intimate expression to our habits and lifestyle. Their forms and ornamentation provide historical testimony of those who chose them as much as of those who have crafted and conserved them. Proof that textiles and clothing are profoundly part of our heritage.

Our expertise and know-
Our clients are mainly private individuals: demanding aesthetes, fine linen lovers, heirs of large estates and their traditions, , collectors, antique dealers focusing on linens for receptions and hospitality both in France and abroad. We also work for the Musée des Arts décoratifs (Museum of Decorative Arts) every now and then.
To further the spirit of « Marie Lavande », we have decided to market the products and accessories that have stood the test of time in our workshop. Having been using them for the 28 years of our rich professional history we have proved their worth. These products meet European standards on the protection of the environment, and our packaging is 95% to 99% biodegradable. They are of professional quality as required by the guild of « Master Craftsmen » and as such are superior to other such products on the market. The accessories we are now making available are those that we use in our workshop while exercising our professional craft.
Whatever the reasons household linen and its manufacture might engage interest; the intricacies of its decoration and the beauty of its fabrics evoke wonder in us all.
