This beautiful one of a kind linen bedsheet is a real family treasure. It has been hand embroidered by trousseaux embroiderers with a beautiful BC Monogram & very refined floral Richelieu embroideries, and surely was a wedding bedsheet. It has been passed on for many generation in Fabrice's family. He wanted to give a new life to this sleeping beauty and chose Maison Flore to celebrate his heritage. This Lilas blouse is a true tribute to "BC" story and the wondeful savoir-faire of trousseaux embroiderers.

For all Maison Flore's treasures, we use a 100% Gots certified organic cotton sewing thread, coming from a dutch supplier.

The fibre comes from Egypt and then is spun and dyed in The Netherlands.

This thread company was founded in 1970 and remains family owned ! They manufacture all of their threads in Europe and care about the safety of their employees and the environment.

From A to Z, this item is born and crafted in France.

Design, sourcing, mending antique materials, cutting out, pattern-making, embroidering and finally sewing : all the steps of fabrication are handmade in Maison Flore's workshop-boutique, based rue Charlot, by Flore herself and local seamstresses.

Yes, it's french couture baby !

Flore created Maison Flore to give a new life to the amazing materials sleeping in our closets.

But she precisely chose trousseau bedsheets and embroidered treasures for her family heritage.

Marie, her great-grand-mother, and Berthe, her grand-mother, were trousseau embroiderers, from mother to daugther, in Marseille. To celebrate this outstanding family story, Flore chose to reuse the handmade beauties she inherited.

This item is made with a special pattern that will fit from a XS size to a XL size.

With pleats on neck line, tied open back & generous volume, it will easily adapt to your body. Your usual size is simply asked to be sure it will be the best fit for you.
