Enrobe your bed in antique lace, hand-stitched embroidery, screenprinting, and patterns in vibrant colours and slip into sumptuous slumber.
Created in 1920, D. Porthault plays a unique role in the luxury home linens industry. In a world of white linen, D. Porthault started a revolution with colour printed sheets, directly inspired by the Impressionist canvases. From handmade embroidery to screen printing, D. Porthault’s creativity and exceptional savoir-faire à la française is underlined by a culture of excellence. D. Porthault is dedicated to satisfying the desires of its loyal clientele and adorning the most prestigious places in the world.
By continuing the artisan screen printing process in Argentan, in the Orne department of France, and by weaving its own materials in its ultra-modern factory near Cambrai in the North of France, D. Porthault continues the ancestral tradition of hand-stitched embroidery in its workshops. Using more than 60 shades of thread, embroiderers create the designs with the Beauvais stitch, satin stitch, back stitch and shadow work techniques. Real artists of refinement and virtuosos of detail, they are the last remaining craftsmen in France who master the art of embroidering laddered hems and handtying lace.
Driven by the values of perfectionism and originality, D. Porthault conveys its vision of linen via an exclusive sensory experience. First through the feel of its materials, most of which are woven in the factory using only the very best fibres. Then through the studio’s interpretation of the designs, in the form of delicate embroidery and prints whose depth is accentuated by frame printing. Finally, the wonders of the imagination are called upon to create products that are always adorned with the most subtle of finishes – the tradition of haute couture in home linens.
