One of the things we love about being based in France is visiting artisan markets. We recently had the opportunity to attend the opening of the Ravel Loves Designers artisan market at the beautiful Ravel Pottery in the town of Aubagne in southern France. Amongst the beautiful grounds and products of the pottery are the carefully designed and hand-made goodies of some very talented creators. Scroll down to see some of the items that are now on our wish list.
These hand-made organic dyed sandals are perfect for a wear with everything French summer.
This bikini really is made for sunning it up on the beautiful French beaches.
