Antique French Fabric pillows,Fine French linens and Antique Fabrics and Textiles


About Denise Dale

I am English and am so lucky to have lived in the beautiful Dordogne region of France for 15 years
Since a child I have been passionate about textiles and hand embroidery,a skill I learned from my grandmother.
All of us who have sewn on a button, can imagine the skill that goes into creating these works of art.
12 year's I set up a market stall in a nearby town, where I sold my pillow designs, working with antique linens and textiles, such was my success,
I began selling my linens and fabric and pillows online 8 years ago

TRADITIONS OF THE FRENCH TROUSSEAU
From the humblest farmhouse to the grandest chateau, most household linens were marked with hand embroidered monograms,from a simple kitchen cloth to the most beautiful linen sheets and table linens,care was taken to "MARK THE TROUSSEAU" with the couples initials
The trousseau whether humble or extravagant was brought by the bride and remained her property.
This tradition carried on until the early 20th century.
The table linens I select are of the finest linen with the most beautiful hand embroidered monograms

Passionate about original and authentic antique French toile fabric
The beauty of the design and the modelling of the original toiles of the 1800s, are like paintings.
I hand make pillows from these wonderful toiles,which are becoming increasing harder to find.

Just a few of the many testimonials from very satisfied customers.
Finest damask and embroidery--as described! Many thanks.

It's like Christmas every time a package arrives from Denise. Beautiful, high-quality linens, gorgeous colors. Very reasonable shipping. I have purchased many sets of napkins and will be passing on to my daughter and nieces as heirlooms.
