“This family certainly has a flair for handicraft.”
The Phelippeau saga
For six generations, couturiers have been picking up the thread of the Phelippeau lineage. A true family saga with know-how dating back to the Middle Ages.
Phelippeau -Tapissier was founded in 1953 by a 23-year-old apprentice with a simple Upholstery CAP [certificate d’aptitude professionnelle - French vocational qualification]. Above all, Maison Phelippeau’s journey has been one of passing on age-old techniques, knowledge and know-how from the Vendée countryside from mother to daughter and father to son since the end of the 19th century. The common thread? A meticulous exigency and a passion for fabrics and decor.
