French entrepreneur Joëlle Serre created the Marie Lavande workshop in 1988 in Paris France.
Bed Linen, tablecloths, bride dresses, flags, embroidery, lace of rare or high quality are her specialty. Her workers handle dry irons weighing 2 to 3 kilos with gestures of the past. Others restore meticulously embroidery and lace.
Nothing really destined this financial analyst to become a linger. Except perhaps precisely his taste for beautiful linen. Parallel to a career started in finance, she enrolled one day at the French School of Art Restoration, "for a change". A few years later, she decided to change career orientation and in 1988, she founded Marie Lavande, an old and premium linen maintenance and restoration company.
