Yves Dorget

Passementerie Verrier ParisPassementier

To hear Yves Dorget speak about the tradition of France’s passementerie (also 'trimmings' in English) is to understand the passion that keeps him in his workshop, day after day. It is a passion that propelled him to set up a business partnership with Anne Anquetin to ensure he could focus exclusively on the craft he loves – creating the bespoke tie-backs, tassels and ornamented fringes (and many other elements) that can decorate an interior in much the same way that jewellery adorns a body. “If you’re unaware of passementerie, you may never notice it – the braids and fringes around a lamp, or the tie-back on the drapes – but once you have a sense of these small items, you notice how they change the room,” he says.
