Véronique Boissy grew up exploring the magical world of her grandmother’s armoire, where she found, as she puts it, “treasures, magic and lace.” That same love of beautiful things informs her work as a textile designer — as well as a concern for the future common to those who honor the past. Based in Montpellier, in the south of France, Boissy works primary with the “noble material” of linen, which is produced under the exacting specifications of the “Masters Of Linen” certification. Flax is a chiefly European crop — 85 percent of what is consumed worldwide is grown there — and naturally ecologically advantageous, as it requires neither irrigation nor fertilizer nor solvents as it’s grown. Her designs are produced, meanwhile, in “Nord Terre Textile” workshops, certified for their artisanal know-how in France’s Nord region. At every point in the production process, the natural world is prioritized while waste is minimized — including at the purchase point, as each piece is digitally printed to order.
