 Situated in Aubagne, the birthplace of nativity figurines, Di Landro has been specialised in making nativity figurines, known as santons, since 1976.

It makes traditional Provencal santon figurines: unique items and biblical figurines from the 17th century.  More than 500 figurines make up 4 collections: two "traditional” series measuring from 24 to 30 cm, a prestigious range measuring 30 cm and a numbered biblical range measuring 30 cm. The workshop masters all modelling, sculpting, sewing and painting techniques. The models are inspired by the Provencal style.


Visits and demonstrations are organised in the workshop/exhibition room. This area displays 300 unique items set up in different scenes: nativity, biblical, Provence and history. The company makes over 12,000 santons a year. Di Landro santon figurines are sold in the workshop/exhibition room and via boutiques in the Provence region.
