Les Toiles Blanches

I love vintage linen
Crisp, clean, hand-embroidered sheets
Monograms, a labour of love
Pretty red and white checked tea towels
Bolsters, pinnies and lace
Cotton and hemp with a memory
passed down
from mother to daughter
le trousseau

If you're like me, you'll love "Les Toiles Blanches".
Linen is a tradition in Marie-Pierre Guiard's family. Her children's clothes, toys, bedding and accessories are crafted from the finest antique French linens ( sometimes over 100 years' old), with perfect patina, vintage fabric remnants, buttons and eco-dyes.

A linen lover's dream
stylish gifts with a soul
for babies, little ones and mum
