Established in Vallabrègues in the county of the Gard, the Atelier Vime lies at the heart of the rich history of wickerworking developed in this village de Provence. Since immemorial times, the wicker culture and work have been the main trades occupying the people of this peninsula bordering the Rhône river, between Arles and Saint Rémy de Provence. Vallabrègues counted as much as 450 wicker workers out of its 1800 inhabitants during the 18th century.

The historic arts & craft trade was extinct when the “hotel Drujon” was acquired by the creators of the Atelier Vime. To this day numerous records still attest to the high level of craftmanship cultivated on the property for close to 150 years.
