Yves Delorme has been an international brand of luxury home linens since 1845. Ernestine Fremaux and her husband founded a linen weaving mill near Lille, in the heart of the French textile industry. Sixty years after the invention of the mechanical loom, it was the dawn of the industrialization of textile manufacturing. A fire destroyed all of the buildings in 1867, but with the help of her nephew, Paul Fremaux, who had joined the company, Mme Fremaux re-built the mills. The business developed during the next few decades and a second company was founded for cotton weaving. In 1993 The first Yves Delorme stores were opened simultaneously in France and in the United States. As of 1995, there were 45 Yves Delorme stores, whereas today there are 450 . In 2015 Yves Delorme celebrates a family passion for textiles that has endured for 170 years. We would like to share with you our journey across Europe called La Route du Linge .
