After growing up in Picardy, France, Pauline Bijvoet moved to New Delhi, India, where she converted a small house into a boutique hotel. Now back to Paris, Pauline presides over Scarlette Ateliers—a company that sells a selection of charming hand-stitched linens and bedding. Pauline has fused her French sensibility with the spirit of India in her work; the patterns on her linens are hand-printed in Rajasthan, India, using the blockprint method. In Scarlette Ateliers’s words, the products are made with “intelligence, beauty, respect, and love of ancestral gestures.”
While the company is based in France, they ship worldwide. Customized hand-embroidery is available for many of the products (which is a lovely gift idea.)
