Jérôme Gigot and Yann Gicquel, creators of Les Touristes, have been greatly influenced by their voyages to the four corners of the earth.
Les Touristes was initially established in the Marais area of Paris in 2003, with the opening of a boutique offering a selection of objects curated from near and far. Since 2006 Les Touristes have created a unique textile line with a penchant for colour, cheerful prints, and vintage and offbeat patterns — collections based around a global concept that blends fashion with decoration to brighten everyday life both at home and on the road.
Les Touristes regularly hang their hats in India where their fabrics are hand-printed, working in close collaboration with a family workshop based in Jaipur, Rajasthan, who use traditional screen printing methods.
Yann and Jerome have now settled in a peaceful corner of the French countryside where the work of creating and maintaining their stunning garden nourishes them with fresh inspiration.
