Les indiennes de Nîmes

Les Indiennes de Nimes continue the tradition started with the import of textiles into southern France by the India Company in the 18th century.  Later local weavers in Avignon took up the manufacture and today, Les Indiennes de Nimes are combining traditional know-how with original archive patterns to keep alive the Camargue textile heritage, especially in local feria festivals.

Worship side

The guardian culottes were designed for the Camargue horsewomen, the Amazons of Provence. They are still made in their original design; its long shape, its reinforced gussets and its solid moleskin fabric, make it an exceptional garment. Thanks to its fitted waist and hips as well as its wide legs, the culottes give a flattering, slender figure.

Despite being a traditional garment, they are as modern as the trousers from Marithé and François Girbaud or as a creation of an avant-garde Japanese designer. Resolutely modern and sharp, reminding us of a well-cut, large pair of trousers.

Because of their well-structured shape, they can be worn just as well with boots, sneakers, moccasins or even roman sandals... And why not with heels? Thanks to its timeless cut, it works just as well with a plain T-shirt as with a chic top. Away from the lands of Camargue, it gives you the right, original touch, all while staying true to the source of style.

Designed to tolerate intense horseback riding daily, for years, these culottes are made to last and contribute to the elegance of the Camargue riders, and soon yours.
