    • Since 1910, the Lartigue family has perpetuated a unique artisanal know-how by weaving Basque linen in its workshops in Bidos and Ascain in the Sud-Ouest de la France.

      Philippe Lartigue, fourth generation of weaver, pays homage with creativity and passion to the Calixte Lartigue establishments, the first weaving workshops founded by his great grandfather in Bidos. From winding to making, passing through weaving or warping, each manufacturing step is carried out in the greatest respect for the tradition of weaving Basque linen.

      Visiting the workshop is an opportunity for tourists and locals alike to explore the history of this territory, its traditions and learn a little more about an iconic product that many already own in their house, without always knowing the origin or the stages of manufacture.

      By entering the weaving workshop, the visitor is immersed in the rhythmic universe of the weaving looms of the warbler and other mechanical machines. He admires the ancestral gestures of the weavers in the middle of the interlacing of multicolored cotton and linen threads (up to 5,500 threads for a fabric 1.80 m wide).

      Lartigue 1910 joined in 2017 the closed circle of companies distinguished by the Label EPV (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant). This award is implemented by the State to distinguish French companies with excellent craftsmanship and industrial know-how.

    Great choice of quality Basque textiles across a wide range of colors and products in a tastefully arranged spacious shop. Very helpful and kind staff attended to all our questions and requests. If the desired item is not available on stock, possible to request it to be made and delivered later. You can also get a peek at the impressive machinery making the fine products.

Super friendly staff, possible to get the Pablo TAX FREE (Detaxe), anything that is not available can be made on demand and sent. Definitely worth visiting by anyone who's looking for high quality Basque textiles.
