Les Tartempois

From a country that’s fantastical, atypical, The Tartempois, tread lightly through villages, over the countryside and beyond the hills.

Tightrope walkers, balancing bubble blowers, they fly from trapeze to trapeze. Gymnasts and acrobats, Les Tartempois scatter happiness and cheerfulness, like confetti, wherever they pass. Inventing stories for themselves and to share with others.

A carnival of tenderness and poetry, they juggle with words and talk to the stars…
Characters with long legs, perhaps a little gangling but all the better for gambolling. With their long arms they can catch the stars…

Their long arms and long legs are padded with little bags at the ends, making them particularly supple, graphic and easy to grab with li’l hands.

Each with a mischievous, rascally, little face … but all so soft at heart.
They cut a fine figure: some with a little waistcoat or a tie, others a hat, bow-tie, a star spangled collar or sequin sprinkled skirt.
Around their necks, a confetti-scattered, fabric travel label, flying in the wind, to carry a pretty message full of promise…

The mixture of materials and colours gives them a style that is both bohemian yet chic.
Opaline-green linen rubs shoulders with checked cotton, mustard polka-dot jersey or star spangled cotton voile.
Ochre curly fur mixes harmoniously with copper-tinted velvet.
The tones are powdery; the association of colours and materials is totally original and softly gentle.

A collection of characters that invite the young and not so young to an imaginary world of dreams and tenderness.
