A Brief History.
I wonder if back in 1845 Ernestine Fremaux and her husband ever knew how big Yves Delorme floral bed linen would become?
It was only sixty years after the evolution of the first mechanical loom, so it really was the dawn of textile manufacturing's industrialisation.
How they recovered after a fire ripped through the entire business in 1867 is extraordinary. But that's exactly what they did with the help of their nephew Paul Fremaux. Together he and his Auntie Madame Fremaux totally rebuilt the factories. So through those times of great hardship and adversity, when all the odds seemed stacked against them, they dusted themselves down and built a wonderful business with impervious resilience which has repelled the many more challenges that would otherwise of destroyed most companies. So thank you Madame Fremaux for having the foresight to carry on.
Yves Delorme Today.
The now sixth generation Yves Delorme family still share a passion for textiles, a lot like we do here at Woods with our own 300 year association with fine linens.
They have become synonymous with elegant floral designs and a quality and durability their repeat customers rely on. The company really has solidified it's position as one of the best designer french bedding choices for aspirational interiors.
