WELCOME TO CAMARGUE
Dressmaker in the Camargue since 1938, Les Indiennes de Nîmes Mistral is today one of the last guarantors of ancestral craftsmanship, part of the epic of the great factories of Nîmes.
This unique know-how in fabric weaving, combined with 18th and 19th century archive designs, allows the Indians of Nîmes Mistral to bring the textile heritage of the Camargue to life.
For nearly a century, the house has elegantly dressed herdsmen, respecting tradition and the chic codes of "choupo".
The history of the house
The Mistral brand was born when Régis Reynaud, friend of the Marquis Folco de Baroncelli-Javon, Lou Marqués, boss of the Gardian Nation, began to supply the costumes of the gardians produced in his clothing factory of around forty workers, in Nîmes. , rue de la Carrière romaine. The clothes were delivered to the Camille establishments in Arles, to the Maison Villevieille (better known under the name “Tout pour le gardian”, the oldest shop in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer), and to the Antonicci house in Lunel.
The affair continued with Régis Reynaud's grandson, Régis Ritter, who created Les Indiennes de Nîmes.
It was then taken over in 2007 by Frédéric Roche. He remains the last maker and maintainer of these traditions.
