Our world...

The company
Le Voyage en Panier is a small company located in Provence, a few kilometres from Avignon, the City of Popes. The story of Le Voyage en Panier begins in 1981. Its founder was fascinated during his travels by the creations of the artisans who wove, with dexterity and know-how, according to their countries’ customs. He decided to promote their work by creating a collection of baskets made of plant material and various natural substances.

In 2010, Dominique Friedmann took over Le Voyage en Panier. He gave himself the challenge of bringing together creativity and exceptional craftsmanship, favouring a value strategy. Today the challenge has been taken up: the baskets are still created using a base of wheat straw, raffia, dwarf palm, and sea rushes, while responding perfectly to trends in prêt-à-porter fashion and to the desires of modern women. In its promotion of the world’s artisans, Le Voyage en Panier has brought another ancestral skill to today’s taste: the art of crocheting. Purses, cases and hats will be part of the 2013 collection. All of the items offered by Le Voyage en Panier are created by artisans and have their own unique character.

The brand
The basket as fashion accessory
Since 1981, Le Voyage en Panier has been the basket specialist, thanks to the quality and traditional knowledge that mark its creations. Today, the brand is becoming part of the fashion accessory market. Our team of designers is working on the creation of more daring models, revisiting lines of baskets, and shaking up our habits. These aren’t our grandmothers’ baskets; here are models that can match any outfit and be carried throughout the year.
