Domestic Science: Andrée Jardin in France

An exciting bulletin for lovers of household supplies from French company Andrée Jardin: Select pieces from the line are now available in the US from Alder & Co. in Portland, OR.

Based in Nantes, in Brittany, France, Andrée Jardin has been making bespoke brooms for more than 80 years. “Our brooms are like Proust’s madeleines,” they say, “evocative of household memories.” To see the full line and for ordering information, go to Andrée Jardin.
