An Ethical, Woman-Run Brand Made in France
Luxe Provence is a woman-run, independent fashion brand based in Provence created by Founder/Creative Director, Tarik Koivisto. Tarik thoughtfully designs her slow fashion collections in her charming hilltop village inspired by Provence's natural beauty, Mediterranean lifestyle and rich artisanal history in respect for the environment and its people. Each of our slow fashion collections are proudly and ethically, Made in France.
Sustainable, Ethical Production & Materials
We hand-select only the finest, quality OEKO-TEX® certified EU linen, along with: French cotton, silks, and luxury deadstock from only the finest producers. To us, slow fashion means quality, over quantity, with sustainable design always top of mind.
We use a pre-order system to help us plan for demands and sizing to avoid over-producing. All of our collections are made in the finest French ateliers, in both Provence and Paris, proudly working locally with highly skilled couturières and seamstresses in France.
Vintage, & Plant-Based, Natural Dying
We are passionate about working sustainability, and routinely collaborate with two natural dye, textile artisans from Provence on unique pieces. In our Luxe Provence Vintage collection, we feature antique 19th and early 20th century linens, cotton and chanvre dresses that we have given new life in indigo. Each season we work with Aixoise, Atelier Simone, who gives these special antique pieces new life with her mastery of indigo dying and patina.
We also work with the sustainable, textile designer Aurore Pelisson, for custom plant-based and natural dying of one-of-a-kind limited edition pieces. Aurore uses only natural dyes to create unique textiles and organic prints for our silk and linen fabrics. Tarik continues to build her knowledge in natural dying techniques and has taken several workshops with Aurore.
Limited Edition Artisanal, Wood Block Prints
We also collaborate with an ethically-run woodblock print atelier in Jaipur, India to create our own custom Provence "les indiennes" textiles using eco-friendly dyes for our LP Maison Collection. We honor this beautiful handcrafted tradition which dates back to the 17th century when these exotic prints first entered the port of Marseille from India, and became a lasting symbol of Provence.
