Les Olivades

Arles - Fashion - Créateur

Léonard Quinche, a printer on fabric Genevois, is at the origin of the company. In 1818, he joined with two Tarasconnais and created an Indian factory St Etienne du Grès, small Provençal village located at the foot of the Alpilles. Textiles are printed on the Board, washed and dried on the nearby meadow... The company then passes from hand to hand until 1948, date on which it is taken and transformed into company Avignonnaise print on fabrics (S.A.I.T) by Pierre Boudin. In 1977, he created with the help of his wife Paule LES OLIVADES, company always controlled and hosted by their children and grandchildren who have set aims: to perpetuate the ancient art of printing on fabrics in the France southern, while making it evolve and adapting it to modern life. The Les Olivades brand was a forerunner in terms of high-end product manufactured and sold by the same company."The Olivades today is the only company to continue the tradition of printing on fabrics born in Marseille in 1648 in Provence."
