Charvet

France

The ancient city of Armen­tières sits just south of the border of Belgium, and for centuries has produced much of France’s best textiles. By the late 18th Century, it was known as cite de la toile for its fabric exper­tise. Coin­ci­den­tally, or perhaps not, the house of TRP Charvet was founded in 1866 and remains the world’s pre-eminent source of linen to this day. While the company relies on the tradi­tional linen manu­fac­tur­ing the region is famed for, it doesn’t shy away from progress, but instead relies on modern weaving to produce classic tea towels in joyous overdyed color­ways, some with jacquard woven letter­ing or window­pane plaid. Its aprons remind wearers that cooking should be a plea­sure: luxu­ri­ous in length and boast­ing a large double pocket in front, they perfectly embody the blend of time-tested tech­nique and contem­po­rary comfort TRP Charvet has perfected over its 150-plus year history.
