In 1918 L’ARSOIE is founded in the Cevennes, central France- renowned for the weaving of silk. It is this stocking of exceptional quality, handmade from precious silk and wrapped in its delicate presentation box.
After unceasing hunting across the continents he found two machines which were not in a state of use but by chance two 80 years old volunteer technicians agree to teach to young apprentices the precision of this particular old savoir-faire. After two years of restoration these almost extinct machines were located and from them were at last created unique stockings, the finest in the world in terms of both quality and texture. Some of their details have been done the last time for the court of Louis XIV.The re-discovered techniques make possible to do exclusive patterns never been done in the past, which requiring six weeks of hard work with two people full time.It is a forgotten technique and a part of French Heritage.
L’ARSOIE now manufactures for the biggest names as Jean-Paul Gautier, Sonia Rykiel or Agent Provocateur and CERVIN is prized by many well-known public personalities as Catherine Deneuve, her Majesty The Queen of Spain or Dita Von Teese.
“I have been obsessed with seamed stockings my whole life, and I would collect vintage ones that were made in the ’40s and ’50s with the authentic styling” Dita Von Teese
