Our head office is located in Rozier-en-Donzy, a small village of 1,300 inhabitants in the Loire region, 1 hour from Lyon, the silk capital. Our workshop was founded in 1990 by Daniel Vial, and has remained in operation until the end of 2022. 

Rozier-en-Donzy is well known for its weaving and silk heritage. Indeed, until the 1970s, the textile industry flourished here, and most of the village's inhabitants worked in weaving. Many had looms at home, while others worked in nearby factories. 

Today, Rozier and neighboring villages still have a few weaving mills working for the luxury goods industry.

A second scarf-making workshop is opening in Pernes-les-Fontaines, a town in the Vaucluse region that has been awarded the "Ville et Métiers d'arts" label.

In 2019, after 5 years of training with her parents, Pascale decided to open a second workshop in Pernes les fontaines. This small town in the Vaucluse department, half an hour from Avignon, is famous for its fountains and heritage. More than twenty craftspeople are also based here. 

Pascale has joined them and is continuing her family's textile design business, while keeping her LES SOIES boutique alive in the heart of the old town, opposite the donjon rise. 

The dynamism and the encounters between artisans nurture creativity. As a result, Pascale is expanding her business to include other accessories and furniture.

The ennoblement and silk painting workshop was created in 1990 by Daniel Vial. 

Daniel, a self-taught painter, met Monique, the daughter and great-granddaughter of weavers. They settled in Rozier, a weaving town. 

For Daniel Vial, it seemed logical to combine his passion for painting with his passion for silk. So they opened a silk painting studio.

Initially, the work consisted of responding to the demands of fashion houses by creating specific models requested by their stylists. This gave them the opportunity to work for such prestigious names as Hermès, Madeleine Vionnet and Malhia Kent. 

In the 2000s, their work evolved and they created their own finished products: silk scarves. 

Silk handpainting in France

After studying at the Beaux Arts, Pascale joined the scarf design business.

The technique of painting on silk is a fairly rare professional practice these days. 

From a technical point of view, we paint our designs directly onto the fabric. We create our own colours using powdered pigments, so the number of colours is limited and we have total control over colourimetry.

The rare craft of silk painting

The technique of painting on silk is now a professional practice that has become rarer.

From a technical point of view, we paint directly on the silk. We create our own colours using powdered pigments, which gives us total control over colourimetry.

Today, our expertise is evolving. We are delighted to embrace new, contemporary techniques. 

We also produce digitally printed models. 

We create our designs on paper, using inks, pencils, collage and other techniques. 

These designs are then digitised and reworked on a graphics palette. We then modify the colours of our model using a colour chart calibrated on the printing machine, so that the colours match our wishes. 

Our designs are then printed in small runs by a neighbouring company in the Lyon region. 

Silk scarves and accessories, made in France

Colourful fashion accessories inspired by nature and modern painting

Daniel and Pascale don't work on the same projects and each have their own style, even if certain inspirations sometimes come together...

Other fashion brands are obviously part of the inspiration. 

But nature, painting, illustration, comics, cinema and children's literature are all part of the driving force behind their creations and the inspiration behind their designs.
