“Close to 50,000 “indienne” printing blocks, this is the real treasure that propelled SOULEIADO among the monuments of the French textile industry heritage. Its story is a magnificent one: that of the “indiennes”, vividly colored cotton fabrics imported from the Great Indies to the coastal port of Marseille at the end of the 16th century. Soon, these bright, color-fast fabrics, then unknown, seduce the greater Provence, from Languedoc to the Riviera. The region starts distributing them throughout the country and they become the favorite fabrics for the next centuries, holding strong through several crisis.
Today, it is following this pattern of implantation that the new owners of SOULEIADO since 2009, Daniel and Stephane Richard, have decided to revive the brand, which has always held a special place in the fashion landscape. Souleaido aficionados can gladly rediscover the beautifully timeless and unique designs inspired by the south of France and its Dolce Vita. As a phoenix reborn of its ashes, SOULEIADO perfectly illustrates the meaning of its Provencal name: the very moment when the sun shines through the clouds after the rain!“
