Tissage de Luz creations find their inspiration in nature, the colors of the ocean and the morning spray. They are accomplices of delicious moments of relaxation in all simplicity. Located in the heart of the Basque Country, the Tissage de Luz brand offers fabrics of impeccable quality, the fruit of ancestral know-how, while respecting traditional French design.

Birth of a brand

The origins of Tissage de Luz can be found in the Basque Country. These fabrics are the fruit of Jean-Baptiste Gouze's passion for quality fabrics. It was in the Lower Pyrenees, in Gestas, that in 1908 this weaver's son created his first mechanical weaving machine on which he made the family trousseau. These colorful and beautifully striped fabrics very quickly become the symbol of Basque linen, quickly seducing canvas merchants. A few years later, it is in the department stores of the capital that the general public can - for the first time - buy this Basque linen whose reputation is well established. Passionate about his trade, this visionary craftsman transmits his love of linen to his son Félix who will undergo training at the Roubaix Weaving School.

Between tradition and modernity

Much later, it was the turn of Jean-Baptiste's granddaughter, Maïté Gouze Fanfare, to perpetuate the tradition of Basque linen, not without bringing its own quintessence to it. She adds a touch of modernity and manages to brave the crisis of the seventies. She first opened the Olaya boutique in Saint-Jean de Luz - at 83 rue Gambetta - then, in the 1980s, gave new life to this high-quality weaving by developing mail-order sales. It was in 2002 that the business became Tissage de Luz. The label continues to seduce lovers of fine linen and, today, Jérôme Fanfare - great-grandson of Jean-Baptiste Gouze and son of Maïté - continues to write the extraordinary story of this Basque family at l creative soul.
