All of our products carry the "Master of Linen" label. A unique quality control guarantee for European linen. When we select a high quality linen, we guarantee that it will be durable over time. Alexandre Turpault linen does not lose its shape or go fluffy. The linen is naturally airy and absorbent and helps to regulate body temperature. This means that it has outstanding insulating properties, hence its freshness during the summer and its comfort during the winter.

 

Its anti-static properties mean that it is also anti-bacterial and antiallergenic. So it doesn’t irritate the skin. It feels great when you’re tired and guarantees a good night’s sleep. It is made from renewable fibres that do not drain the nutrients from the soil and that use up very few chemical fertilisers. It is totally recyclable.

 

Table Linen

Alexandre Turpault draws on French tradition and expertise from times gone by to bring you the craftsmanship of the future. All of our products carry the "Master of Linen" label. A unique quality control guarantee for European linen.

Alexandre Turpault  has developed its range of embroidered linen whilst still caring for the environment: The linen used is French or European and so it has not travelled far. Linen is a natural fabric that does not use vast amounts of water for its growth, so it is ecologically sound.

The embroidery work is carried out in Northern France, so Alexandre Turpault is continuing to cherish and value the expertise and reputation of Cambrésis. The lacework is a real tribute to the traditions, the history and the meticulously detailed work of our ancestors.

Baby alpaca

Baby alpaca

Alexandre Turpault has, since 2008, chosen to work with baby alpaca so you can enjoy a winter wrapped in softness. This unique fibre is 100% natural as well as being soft and light, and has unparalleled thermal insulation and resistance properties. The alpaca is part of the camel family (a close relative of the lama) and is originally from the Peruvian Andes.

It lives at high altitudes in extreme temperatures. Over the centuries, the alpaca has developed its outstanding fine, light and soft fibre. The alpaca fibre contains microscopic pockets of air that are what gives the alpaca its insulating qualities.

At shearing time, the fibres are sorted manually according to their quality: Baby alpaca is famous for the delicacy of its fibre that is no greater than 22 microns, and is particularly valued for its softness. This luxurious, warm and silky fibre never irritates and contains no lanolin, an allergy-inducing substance that can be found in traditional wool.
