Why this collaboration?

Our favorite discovery ! Spools of colorful thread and iconic fabrics displayed on old wooden consoles.

The Lissiers were immediately seduced by the colorful universe of Maison Sajou and the solar energy of its founder. It is therefore natural that we chose to move forward together to revalorize several fabrics that do not meet the house's standards. In fact, streaks of ink appeared on several colored canvases, following a printing fault. Particularly attracted by the tangy tones of three of them, our collaboration was born!

The models: historical paintings revisited to modern tastes!

The fabrics of the first two pairs take us into a rural and rural atmosphere with the toile de Jouy “Plaisirs de la Campagne” which depicts an idealized life in the countryside in the 18th century. From breeding, through hunting and gathering, its patterns originally illustrated by the artist Jean-Baptiste Huet, are adorned with a bright pink for the lace version and a cerulean blue for the The essential Velcro model. These contemporary colors contrast with the charm of the old and these designs of yesteryear .

The third pair, an evocation of COQUECIGRUES , which are fabulous imaginary birds, and which are said to come from the rooster, the crane and the stork...

The designs of these 3 historic fabrics were adapted and resized by Frédérique Crestin-Billet with smaller patterns, intended for making accessories or smaller interiors. These delicate designs will take us to dreamland with its spring colors.

The evidence of an eco-responsible commitment and the safeguarding of French heritage , carried by both Maison Sajou and Le Lissier, have combined with a love of detail and authenticity in order to offer quality creations steeped in history. , produced reasonably and locally.
