Philosophie

Here at La Cerise sur le Gâteau we believe in doing things the right way, so we do our shopping in France and Europe.

Our Toile de Jouy comes from Alsace, our linen from the Vosges and naturally our Liberty prints come from London.  Our tea towels are woven in Portugal, but no further away than that, otherwise we’re talking too many air miles.

All our production is centered around Porto in Portugal, where they’ve a long textile history.

We use silk screen methods and water based inks to produce our prints.  (But yes!  It’s just as colour-fast, wash after wash, but less polluting…)

All our design work and everything else is done in our studio in a beautifully converted former factory in Alsace.

A note from Anne…

Voilà!   Just to make it clear to you that I believe in quality – I buy my vegetables from a nearby farmer, so why would I behave differently when I’m producing my household linen collection?
