Provençal Fabrics with Les Olivades

By Caroline Taret

This small family business located in Saint-Etienne de Grès, a few kilometers from Saint-Rémy de Provence, is one of the landmarks of “Made in France” printed fabric design: the Boudin family and their specialized workers continue the tradition of Provence “indiennes” , distinctive and instantly recognizable fabrics from the region. Their secret, to preserve tradition while developing contemporary prints: floral patterns are as classic as they are graphic, and decorate rolls of fabric for shirts or accessories for the home. Jean-François Boudin welcomes us to his factory and recounts the adventure that continues to charm the whole world.
