Lavender spindle


The lavender spindle was born in the 18th century, when Provence became a land of lavender cultivating to supply the perfumers from Grasse. On summer evenings, women pick fresh sprigs of lavender, turn them over and weave them with recycled linen ribbon to lock in the scent.

The lavender spindle repels moths, perfumes your closets, and it is a promise of happiness for young couples.

Each spindle is unique, the color of its ribbon, satin or linen, a surprise!

NB: According to tradition, lavender spindles are to be kept for 46 years in homes, then are to be thrown out to celebrate “noces de lavande”: 46 years of marriage! Pressed on its woven part on a regular basis, the spindle diffuses its scent for 5 years and a few drops of lavender essential oil increase its lifespan. For the record, you need about 4 meters of ribbon for each bobbin.
