OUR HISTORY: The Art of the Stole
At the beginning, in 1996, a trip to India inspired by the beauty of the cashmere patterns. Now gathered in a private collection, and the nobility of weavers' traditions, the first stoles from Petrusse are emerging.
The Maison then experienced a boom: from rue des Remparts to the aisles of Tourny to Bordeaux, passing by Paris (46 boulevard Raspail from 2000 and Printemps Haussmann in 2007), she set up her workshops at Château Mauriac, in the heart of the Bordeaux vineyard.
With three shops in Bordeaux and Paris, creation workshops at Château Mauriac, and more than 300 points of sale in the world, Maison Petrusse is now a reference mark in the creation of scarves, scarves, silk squares, stoles. In 2019, it was taken over by Florence Lafragette. Guided by the creation, the beautiful, the good, the appearance and the art, Florence continues its way entrepreneurial.
As president and artistic director, Florence Lafragette breathes new creative impetus at Petrusse. Towards beautiful horizons marked by vibrant colors and subjects responsible for French manufacturing. Always with the heart of his concerns, Social and environmental responsibilities, the digitalization and the internationalization of the House. For ecological, ethical and social foundations, built, stone after stone, to last.
OUR STOLES COME TO LIFE
At Château Mauriac, in the heart of the Bordeaux vineyard, our creation and development workshops.
The minute story: the château was built in 1860 by Jacques Mauriac, grandfather of the Nobel Prize in Literature, François Mauriac. A place that inspired his bestseller, Genitrix, every day in the heart of the creativity of the team.
In this place synonymous with art and literature forever, excellence is our weft thread. Our creations are exclusive and in limited edition. Recognized for our proximity to artists and the world of culture with whom we create and which we inspire, the biggest institutions regularly call on our inspiration to translate on the stole all the nobility of their inheritance.
It is in this inspired and inspiring artistic universe, that thoroughness takes on its full meaning. In our workshops, our most beautiful models are decorated with feathers, break in, false furs or pearls hand-embroidered. It is also here that our ribbons, head-lists, kimonos, blouses, head bands, sleeves, tiaras, bags, darlings and other silk, wool, cashmere accessories are made with the greatest attention in a logic of upcycling, 100% handmade.
