This Arpin picnic plaid is made of Séez fabric, 100 % merino wool from Arles, in the south of France, light and pleasant to the touch. The diamond pattern adds a touch that is both contemporary and reminiscent of the seventies.
The Picnic plaid is made in France by Filature Arpin, one of the last companies to weave their finished products and made-to-measure items from raw animal fleece, and to work on heritage-listed machines. Because we do not go out to conquer the world every day, sometimes we stay at home, Arpin has developed collections for the house: blankets and plaids, alongside their technical materials. These items share the same mission as the woollen ones that equipped the 19th century explorers: protect from the bite of cold and the rest, and make life softer and more beautiful.
For almost two hundred years, Filature Arpin has perpetuated a rare and preserved ancestral know-how. It has received the prestigious “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant” label.
