www.BoutiqueProvencale.co.uk brings the best of Provence direct to your door.
Specialising in original gifts and home and garden accessories, the product range features items that you simply won’t find on the high street. The website is the brainchild of Sue Aitken, who is passionate about the region, and wanted to bring together some of the fantastic products available in the south of France – and to make them available to discerning shoppers, both in the UK and abroad.
The site takes its inspiration from the delightful, small boutiques to be found all over Provence which stock an eclectic collection of quality gifts and decorative accessories for the home. Sue’s travelled all over the region (it’s a hard job, but someone had to do it!) to find items that combine creative design with quality production – and deliver a southern French je ne sais quoi.
Boutique Provencale’s focus is on artisan producers, many of them family firms, who are really passionate about what they do – whether it’s the Forestier family at Ensoleillade who supply the majority of the site’s range of pretty provencal table linen or small company Anticline, who supply a range of country style kitchen accessories.
Gone Pottery One of the most popular areas of the website is the Pottery section, and Festin Coquin pottery in particular. The range consists of tableware and cookware which is a pleasure to display and use. The brand’s founders are a married couple, Patrice and Fabienne Berillon. Patrice is a former fashion designer and Fabienne is a ceramist. The duo create a new range of designs every year in distinctive colours, with the latest pieces sitting easily alongside their predecessors. So Festin Coquin fans can create their own eclectic collections, which never lose their appeal or feel outdated. All the pottery is hand painted (with some pieces taking more than an hour and a half to complete) which makes each item unique. Boutique Provencale is the only UK importer of Festin Coquin and sells this highly original pottery across the world – and even back to a number of customers in France!
French Dressing Boutique Provencale has a number of attractive kitchen accessories that are also very popular with customers who are looking to add a touch of French flair to their kitchens. Whether you’ve gone “full on” for the French country look or are simply looking for the odd decorative item to add the finishing touch to your decor, Boutique Provencale will have what you’re looking for. The site stocks everything from zinc cutler holders and trays to wooden cutlery boxes and wrought iron cookery book stands.
It’s a Gift With a wide range of over 500 different French products, as well as free gift wrapping of every order, Boutique Provencale is a great destination when you’re looking for unique gifts for family and friends – particularly if they’re francophiles. There are a number of the items on the site with French text or retro designs that make ideal presents for lovers of all things French.
