Marcel Boussac has remained legendary for his intuitive and creative genius. The son of a clothing manufacturer, he showed exceptional commercial vision, establishing his eponymous brand in 1934. An essential figure of the French entrepreneurial landscape, he was an icon of the textile industry in the 1950s and truly revolutionized French fabric. Expertise, innovation and anticipation of the market made up his triple winning formula. Extremely meticulous, Marcel Boussac refused to compromise on quality and constantly invested in high-performance equipment. With an exacting technique and new patterns for a younger clientele, he had exceptional success right up to the 1960s.
Both experimental and contemporary, Boussac's latest collections highlight new materials, as well as an innovative approach to stylish decoration. Stretch virgin wools, 3D printing, jacquards with subtle mixes of various fibers, quilted materials and sophisticated plain fabrics with refined textural effects are brand basics. Boussac pushes back the limits of textile creation while keeping in mind comfort, quality of execution and ease of use.
"This is a Braquenié," say the experts. A short sentence that says a lot about the prestige of this name. This historic house, founded in 1824, embodies the very spirit of French classicism.
Braquenié, known for its Indian fabrics, cottons, toiles de Jouy, carpets and one-of-a-kind mats with hand-knotted strands, has always been wherever 'art de vivre' reigns: the Louvre, Chambord, the Vatican, all the courts of Europe under Napoléon III, Victor Hugo's home... and today as well in many charming hotels and plush private residences.

Characterized by seductive colour palettes and unexpected patterns, Dedar's fabrics combine precious yarns with research into fiber technology to offer various solutions for curtains, upholstery and wall covering of timeless elegance.
Fascinated by the beauty of the Greek islands, the sun, the blue sea and sky, Patrice Marraud des Grottes is also fascinated by words. Each season he names the products of his collections himself, in a way that anyone who browses a collection feels like setting off on a poetic journey. The words "Author" and "Editor" which sign the creations take on their full meaning.
