    • In Esquièze-Sère, a stone's throw from Luz-Saint-Sauveur, in the heart of the Pays Toy in the Pyrenees national park, La Carde opens its doors wide. You will be able to discover a unique know-how in the manufacture of wool articles from the Pyrenees, 100% Pays Toy.

      In the ToyPays Toy, breeding is a tradition. Sheep have always been a pillar of local agriculture. As far back as we can remember, this small area was a country of weavers.

      Thus, as early as 1891, Joseph Cazenave and his wife Marie, great-grandfathers of the last generation of Lafond, were already trading in yarn and working on a contract basis to spinning wool.

      Their son Louis and his wife Catherine followed in their footsteps and created La Carde. Their own daughter, Marie will marry Marcel Lafond : entrepreneurs at heart, together they will introduce the work of the fabric of the Pyrenees and the weaving of the blankets. A business that Louis, their son, and his wife Martine took over in the 1980s.

      Today, it is their turn to pass the torch on to their children, Aude and Damien, who intend to keep this company going as a tribute to those who have worked hard and built for them.

      La Carde, a manufacturer of blankets, plaids, duvets and articles made of wool from the Pyrenees, is a family business. Since 1891, five generations have passed on the torch of what has remained a craft business and become the Maison Lafond.

    Ordered online a vest for my son and an overshirt for myself. I had customer service on the phone not living there, top service, fast shipping and very very happy with the products received. A great discovery via the show: Échappées belles confirmed by the quality of the products.
