GANG DE GRAND-MÈRES
“Toulousain Tricot’lore” wollen cap for winter or Spirito straw hat for summer ?! A difficult choice !!! I Eventually I bought a straw hat, with a crocheted ribbon and a leather logo, all made in France (Tarn and Vaucluse). Perfect to face the summer heat! My summer was not very hot but I used it every single sunny day. In this pic, during a great day in the Cotswold lavender fields.

Company profile :
Le Gang de Grand-Mères is Hugo’s idea in 2014. The brand offers colourful fashion accessories (scarf, hat, wollen cap, tie…) handmade by French grandmothers in Provence. You choose your item, you choose your colour and you choose your preferred grandmother to make you your cap tailored with love. And a few days later, you will receive your accessory in your letter box. Each GDGM Logo is engraved in leather in Aix en Provence, and then they are painted by hand in their workshop: both tell you that each piece is unique. We particulary like than 30% of profits from their sales go to “Les Mamies du gang” association, to tackle elderly social isolation.
