Quality santons

To choose quality santons, you must take into account several criteria. They must of course be made in an artisanal way in terracotta and painted by hand… but that is not enough!

You must also pay particular attention to the finesse of the details (this is the signature and the know-how of a "great" santonnier). In particular, the face, the drape and the shapes of the santon attest to the quality of the mold. Likewise, the realism and expression of the face gives you guarantees on the painter's mastery.

A renowned santonnier must therefore be recognized as an "artisan of art" ... And, as a guarantee of quality, our santonnier has also received the gold medal for the best worker of France twice!

Christmas figurines

In the crib, each character has a specific function to help recreate the Nativity scene surrounded by a village in Provence. Apart from the subjects of the stable, unavoidable, old Provencal trades are represented: baker, miller, shepherd, garlic seller, washerwoman, fisherman, and many others.

In fact, it is about reviving a village as if Jesus had been born in Provence: the angel Boufarèu (blower) announces the news to the shepherds. All the inhabitants converge on the stable to see the Newborn. They cross the hill, with their baskets of crops, their animals, go through the olive groves, and all the Provençal landscapes are represented.

So let yourself be transported by the magic of a Provençal crib, and immerse yourself in the world of santons, jovial and cheerful figurines. The spirit of Christmas is already blowing through your home!

Did you know?

Originally, it was Saint Francis of Assisi who, in 1223, staged a representation of the nativity with real characters and animals (living crib).

It was not until the beginning of 1800 that cribs reappeared in churches (after the ban by the French Revolution). At that time, a Marseillais, named Louis Lagnel, had the idea to model the characters of the nativity in clay, and to create molds to reproduce his models in series. He also represented the people who lived around him, the baker, the grinder ... The first santon and the Provençal crèche were born, and the Provençals contributed greatly to its expansion throughout France.
