In 1845 Ernestine Fremaux and her husband founded a linen weaving mill near Lille, in the heart of the French textile industry. Sixty years after the invention of the mechanical loom, it was the dawn of the industrialization of textile manufacturing.
In the early 1980s, Dominique Fremaux, became President of the Group. At this time, he met Mr Yves Delorme, a talented stylist for home decor, notably in the domain of bath linens.
In 1993 the first Yves Delorme stores were opened simultaneously in France and in the United States, there are now over 450 stores worldwide. The brand now produces bath linens, bed linens, table linen, home perfumes and a range of baby products.
