Petite France 100% made in France

Petite France 100% made in France

Petite France is a husband and wife partnership between Celine (French) and Jonathan (Australian), and also baby Remi (both).

The products are all 100% made in France, from kitchenware, homewares, fashion, and kids’ wooden toys, to body care. They are all made following a traditional savoir-faire that has been around for decades, sometimes centuries. While there were many French-inspired products and plenty of ‘French style’, there was a sense of a huge gap between all of this and the true French-made products.

Petite France offers you the unique quality, beauty, and charisma of France, with products developed over time, with craftsmanship, and using nature and society as a guide.

Air Tahiti Nui

Air Tahiti Nui

The Spirit of Air Tahiti Nui:

When you step aboard Air Tahiti Nui, you’ll find yourself transported to the charm of the French Polynesian islands.

The cabins create a relaxing environment that reflects the culture, allure, and natural splendour of Polynesia. Their colours evoke sensations akin to what you will experience when arriving in Tahiti: the warmth of the woods, the intensity of the oceans and lagoons, the luminosity of the islands, and the freshness of the lush foliage. Air Tahiti is delighted to extend the traditional Tahitian hospitality to make you feel welcome and at home in Tahiti.

Introducing the Tahitian Dreamline:
The Dreamliner fleet signifies the start of a new chapter in a proud history of connecting Tahiti with the world. Believed to be the best aircraft flying the skies, the Boeing 787-9 has been selected and made uniquely Tahitian. Come and fly with Air Tahiti Nui and be among the first to be carried to your dream destination on the wings of Air Tahiti’s new Dreamliner.

Authentic French Cutlery

Authentic French Cutlery

Nothing says true French elegance like authentic french cutlery pieces from Laguiole Jean Néron and Laguiole En Aubrac.

Calling the French cutlery capital Thiers their home, Laguiole Jean Néron’s ranges are proudly made in the heart of the area where cutlers have been crafting cutlery for over seven centuries. Each piece features the hallmark Laguiole bee, and a timeless style and spirit of design that has been passed down through 3 generations.

Laguiole En Aubrac is a collector's guilty pleasure. Each piece undergoes a long production journey: a single artisan works on a knife from start to finish to ensure it is of the utmost quality, with the handle bearing the unique signature of its creator when it is finished. The range also includes a selection of stunning wine openers made from unique materials, such as fossilised mammoth ivory.

THE
FRENCH
MARKET

Let’s face it, no look is really complete without the right finishes. Not to the best of standards, anyway (just tellin’ it like it is, babe). Upgrading your shoe game. Platforms, stilettos, wedges, mules, boots—stretch those legs next time you head out, then rock sliders, sneakers, and flats when it’s time to chill.
