Did you know that flax is grown only in the optimal climate of France, Belgium and The Netherlands? Here the soil and climate are optimal for flax production, so it’s no surprise that flax comes from Europe. Our French linen are made from the finest flax of France. But be careful, to ensure the finest quality linens we all love, Flax has to be slowly processed with respect to traditional craftsmanship... that's how it is processed in France.
Linen is part of French heritage. I cannot imagine a chiffon wardrobe without linen tableware, bed sheets, towels and napkins... Nowadays, the intricate embroideries our grandmothers used to saw patiently may have disappeared but linen is still a must in any French household. It may sound a bit luxurious, yet has always been part of French living... So, we are Introducing Flax... and welcoming linen on French Bliss...
What's behind the Marseille Soap you've just purchased? Our Marseille Soaps (Savons de Marseille) are created by the 'Le Serail' Soap Factory, one of the last remaining artisanal and traditional soap-making factories in Marseille, based in the Phocéenne city. The family business has used time-honoured methods for making France’s favourite soap, using the traditional expertise of a Maître Savonnier – a Master Soap Maker. Le Serail continues to make Marseille soaps the old fashioned way – boiled in a cauldron, hand cut, air dried and stamped.
Savon de Marseille (French Marseille Soap), is believed to be the most excellent soap in the world. Renowned for its powerful cleaning abilities for laundry and general household cleaning, it is also suitable to people with sensitive skin, including babies, through to its hypoallergenic qualities. Traditional Marseille Soap is composed of 72 per cent of fatty acid (vegetal origin), resulting from the mixing of oils and soda-ash or sea salt and 28 per cent water. It is a 100% natural Soap that is eco-friendly and very versatile. So, how did the manufacture of this beautiful Savon de Marseille begin?
