Would you like to bring back a nice souvenir from Alsace, that is not Made in China but guaranteed Made in Alsace? Let’s go to the factory shop Beauvillé, located in Ribeauvillé, a nice village on the Alsace Wine Route.

Beauvillé is an Alsatian company of luxury textiles, making  printed linens: mainly tablecloths, napkins and tea towels. Beauvillé factory exists for over two centuries and makes products of this brand from Vosges cotton. It’s 100% French and it’s quite popular abroad. Beauvillé creations are widely exported and dress up prestigious tables around the world.

Next to the factory, there is a very large factory shop, where you can buy Beauvillé creations at prices about 25 to 30% cheaper than in normal shops. This discount is significant, knowing that Beauvillé products are top of the range and therefore quite expensive… Quality has a price and it’s normal, but we are always happy to enjoy a factory price. Speaking of quality, I have Beauvillé tablecloths and tea towels at home and they haven’t aged a bit after many years: I am really convinced by the quality of these textiles!

The factory shop offers a broad range of tablecloths, tea towels, fabrics, cushions… Patterns are diverse and it’s possible to find traditional Alsatian patterns, flowery ones, modern ones, different colors… There is something for every taste! Products for sale are of 1st choice (similar to those sold in normal shops) and 2nd choice. The latter have a little defect, that will be shown to you, but they are cheaper. It could be worth it!

It is also possible to buy in the factory shop fabrics from the Manufacture d’Impression sur Etoffes of Beauvillé, sold by the meter, as well as various accessories: notebooks, trays, coated sets, paper napkins… Can we bet that you won’t leave empty handed?

I liked

  • 100% French products, entirely made in Alsace
  • Amazing quality of the fabrics
  • Large choice
  • Factory prices

I liked a little less

  • Nothings!
