It took more than 30 years of collaboration with the Mérinos d’Arles Antique® sheep breeders to redevelop the finest wool in the northern hemisphere, a Brun de Vian-Tiran exclusivity. Add to that 10 years of partnership with the top French school of industrial creation, the Workshops of the ENSCI-Les Ateliers, for extraordinary capsule collections. All the excellence of the French wool industry is united here, from the sheep breeder to the designer, another demonstration of Brun de Vian-Tiran’s role as a benevolent, responsible ecosystem, full of promise for the future.
The ENSCI students were inspired by the land around the ancient city of Arles, from the rugged Alpilles Hills to the sandy coastline of the Camargue. The region is the home to groves of olives and paddy fields of rice, alongside the precious safeguarded natural environment of the Crau Plain, the last European steppe, with its peacefully grazing sheep. Eight colours came together for the collection: Camargue bull black - “Taureau”, river blue - ”Rhône“, salt-marsh pink - “Marais salant”... From these colours, four throws were created: “Olivier”, “Graminée”, “Aube”, and “Embrun”, made of pure swathes of fabric, with no additional finishings. They are also available as scarves.
The ultimate expression of the region and the know-how which have nourished Brun de Vian-Tiran for more than two centuries, and for which we proudly carry the banner.
