“We aim to re-create a colourful and fragrant Provencal market stall wherever we go, with an array of unusual gifts such one-off pieces of pottery sourced from a local potter, Provence lavender range direct from Lavender growers on the mountain, unusual preserves, honeys and pates all harvested or handmade by local artisans. The range also includes aromatic oils, soaps, room fragrances and of course the look would not be complete without a selected range of beautifully made French market baskets to carry all your purchases in,” says Christine.
The entire range from Made inProvenceis sourced from small established artisans in the region of Mont Ventoux (best known for being the toughest climb on the Tour de France) who believe in traditional craftsmanship and are passionate about their culture and history. The products are all handmade or hand-crafted using long-established methods and are free from parabens, artificial additives and other nasties.”
