I love stripes!

Artiga deck chair
I love the tissues from the basque traditional manufacturer Artiga. Actually, in my house all my curtains are made out of Artiga tissues! They also have some ready made products like bags, espadrilles, bread baskets and oven gloves for example. Their summer collection came up the other day and  it really makes me long for lazy summer days in those striped deck chairs!

Another well known basque brand is Jean Vier. They make absolutely stunning tissues in both vivid colours and more restrained colour schemes.

True for both brands is that they use traditional techniques and only sell high quality products - at a price.  The stripes were originally seven and represented the seven regions in the Pays Basque.

  1. J'ai deux torchons de cette marque (Artiga)et ce sont les préférés de la famille tant ils sont beaux (couleurs) et de qualités. Ils ont été offert par une "Suédoaquitainia".Merci...
