Founded in 1864, Lehodey Vanibois is the only heir to wickerwork skills that were very much a local presence, in the Cotentin marshes and in Rémilly, up until the 19th century.

The firm has carried on the art of wickerwork, gradually adding joinery and rattan furniture making to its activities, so that today it enjoys a reputation among catering professionals for its wicker display cases, and among interior designers for its made-to-measure panels and screen walls. With its own research office, drawing on its additional joinery skills, and benefiting from cooperation with designers, Lehodey Vanibois has diversified the use of wickerwork in furnishings, by designing a new range of furniture for verandas and indoor use. The wickerwork technique employed is specific to Rémilly: indeed, the braiding is carried out in the opposite direction from all other techniques. Mindful of preserving the local memory of this expertise, the firm runs a wickerwork museum that bears witness to the evolution of production since 1864. The museum is of course open to the public.
