With its large selection of household linens made from Provencal fabric sourced directly from France, Amelie Michel enables its customers to buy gift certificates that allow them to give gifts of quality household linens to family and friends on special occasions like anniversaries, birthdays and weddings.
According to Michael Newberg, who owns Amelie Michel with Amelia, his wife, “We were visiting my grandmother’s homestead in the South of France when we first noticed this gorgeous fabric in the open-air markets in Provence. Naturally tempted, we brought back quite a few samples to the organic farm we run in Connecticut. We used the fabric to cover the farm stand tables and before we knew it, our tablecloths were as much in demand as our farm produce. We ended up planning another trip to France the following winter so that we could bring back several duffel bags full of these pretty tablecloths.”
Today, Amelie Michel enjoys an established clientele for their household linens and much of what they sell is custom made for them. The fabrics are not only practical, but also visually very pleasing. They are in high demand because they are literally maintenance free, as they do not require ironing, wash easily and are good for rough use.
Amelia says, “The Jacquard cotton poly weaves made in the ancient French mills are especially popular for their quality, beauty and ability to last several years. They continue to look great in spite of several washes. Our range of household linens makes great gifts. With this in mind, we introduced the gift certificates so the recipient can choose what they like!”
The gift certificates come in a special gift envelope with a personal message from the sender and these can also be conveniently ordered online.
Amelie Michel also offers pure cotton fabrics of different types. Since customers might want to look at the fabric before buying them online, Amelie Michel invites them to meet in person at one of their several on-going sales at different locations.
