Sale to private individuals and professionals

Located in the historical region of braiding, where it took over from a company founded in 1850, the company is one of the last remaining French manufacturers of braiding elements for haute-couture and ready-to-wear fashion, made particularly using rare wooden looms, some of which over 150 years old.

The entire production is made in the workshops. It makes and sells braiding elements: plaits, galloons, chenilles, fringes, twists and decorative items (frogs, buttons, pompoms, tassels, hand-knotted fringes) or finished products (belts, bags, accessories, etc.). It works to order, but also proposes its own collection of braided textiles and bags.


Its clientele consists exclusively of professionals in the high-end fashion sector (sewing and small leather goods), and top names in show business.
