History

The Moutet textile adventure began in 1874. Jean-Baptiste Moutet bought "Le bon coin" and created the novelty shop "Au coin de la rue" in Orthez.
With the acquisition of 4 handlooms, Jean-Baptiste Moutet became a manufacturer in 1913.    
It was in 1919 that a Béarn household linen was born, inspired by the ox mantle, a thick fabric with a white background that protects animals from the sun and insects.  The 7 stripes of this mantle symbolise the seven Basque provinces... hence the name "Basque linen".

A unique know -how 

Since 1919, Tissage Moutet has been developing exceptional know-how to weave Basque and jacquard linen in Orthez, in the Béarn region. Historically, Tissage Moutet has woven linen fabrics, with sets of strips of different colours and thicknesses.

The appearance of looms using a Jacquard mechanism marked the beginning of more complex patterns, a real technical and artistic revolution. It is through this technique, the use of cotton and the desire to innovate that Tissage Moutet specialises in colourful, original and high quality table linen.

The Atelier d'Art de France and Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant labels mark and pay tribute to the quality work carried out at Moutet for 5 generations.

 Fabric maintenance


French-Weaving-Moutet-Ker-de-FranceWashing

All fabrics can be machine washed up to 60°, but we generally recommend a first wash at 30 or 40°. It may happen that some threads "bleed" a little in the first wash... Just wash again immediately and all the excess dye will disappear. This is why it is always better not to mix colours and to leave the linen to soak overnight in cold water with a little white vinegar.

Avoid mixing synthetic and natural fibres, as polyester can form lint that clings to natural fibres.

Drying- ironing:

It is recommended to take wet clothes out of the machine quickly to avoid creasing or deforming them. In addition, it is always important to avoid excessive ironing, in particular the extraction of water by using strong pressure, as is customary in industrial laundries.

As the laundry is washed, it will form fewer creases.


Coated fabrics:

It is advisable to wash coated fabrics with a sponge and Marseille soap after each use. Never use abrasive products such as bleach to wash them. In addition, remember to bring coasters for wine bottles.   

You can wash these fabrics twice a year maximum, using a 30°C program without spinning. They can be dried and ironed on the reverse side, which will reactivate the protective film.

Before washing / after washing

Cotton (untreated) always shrinks a bit after the 1st wash!

Pull each side well, then iron it... and off you go for the next round!

As an indication, average dimensions observed 15x21 cm before washing. 14x19.5 cm after washing.
