‘The Cévennes, with wild landscapes and ancient rocks, it’s valleys of green oak and it’s deep, deep quiet, seeps into your bones and grounds you, and for the first time you know you have found a place that you will never want to leave’ - Lou
The story of figTart really began way back when Lou and her family stumbled across an old stone house high up in the hills in the wild and rugged region of the Cévennes in Southern France. The house was surrounded by ancient fig trees that opened out onto the valley below. They were enchanted, uprooted themselves from London with their two baby girls and the family’s Cévenol adventures began.
Molly worked in London but spent every moment she could with the family at the house, immersed in nature. Waking up to big skies, Lou & Molly dreamed of bringing little pieces of Cévenol magic into people’s homes...
Who we are
‘If you could choose your family, we would choose each other.’ - Molly
Lou & Molly are wonderful friends, trusted teammates and also, stepmother and stepdaughter; a special relationship they love.
Lou met Molly’s dad when she was living and working in Kenya on safaris. Straight away she and Molly had an immediate and deep affinity for each other, which has evolved from best friends to now also business partners and creative collaborators.
