BEIGE IS ZEN

Beige is both a soothing and chic colour. It evokes sand, linen and subtle onset of autumn. In French cities, beige echoes the elegance of finely carved stonework.

Beige Made in france products selection

In September, we interpreted this colour with some “basic & timeless” products. Our tote bag in thick natural linen (620g/m2) and large dimensions (70 x 52 cm) into which you can put all your travel gear or your days shopping.

Or our spiral bound notebook with refillable construction paper in 100% pure blank fiber (80 tear-off sheets), with a rubber band to secure it, to use as a journal after a walk or a special visit… A beautiful pocket knife with an olive wood handle, hand-forged in Thiers and a raw linen dish towel woven in Armentières in the north would be ideal companions for a mushroom picking adventure…

In a “taupe” mood this ceramic bowl from Vallauris is simply superb: it exists in different sizes and formats. Finally, keeping with a “camouflage” spirit, our hand-braided rope bracelet, can save your life if necessary with its 2.5 meter length. Otherwise how about lazing around the house in linen-coloured espadrilles, the most comfortable house-shoes ever!
