The head in the knots...

In October 1976, the "Fleur de France", offshore caseyeur of the Maritime District of Morlaix (a caseyeur catches crustaceans ...) , leaves the Chantier Albert Péron de Camaret (29) to join Moguériec. It becomes the most beautiful games room of the "foam" who then spends all his days of vacation there! It is by dragging on the port, strolling between the traps handmade in Dordogne strips, stripping the winch, going down into the tank filled to block, loading the "boëtte" (the baits), putting away the tools, curling up the orins (storing the ropes in circles ...) that the fishing virus seized the "kid". It was by seamanship, under the watchful eye of his "boss" that he grew up, it was the friendship of this "boss" that made him a little what he is today. He has never forgotten and he knows what he owes to this tender time!

In search of the gestures of yesteryear...

The taste for a job well done, the sense of effort, surpassing oneself, order, the beautiful and tidy, the gestures of yesteryear... this is what the fishermen of Moguériec taught me. They have filled the sea with their sweat for so many years, they must have been inventive, reckless, pioneers... So many families have lived from the riches they snatched from the sea... They have left a beautiful legacy that it would be detrimental not to keep track of. To seek and reproduce the gestures of the elders is to keep them a little with us, to allow them to go down again to walk on the port as before, to tap on the barometer, to sit on the bench, it is to pay tribute to them, to moor their yesterdays with our tomorrows.

Thus was born "Le Comptoir de la Fleur de France"...

The shelves of the "Comptoir de la Fleur de France" are therefore filled, according to the seasons and according to the rhythm of the Sailor (who does not do only that!) with products that are all elements of the local heritage. Everything is handmade, by hand, eyes turned to the nearby sea, using natural materials (Hemp, Manila, Sisal, Linen, Cotton, Blown Glass ...) as well as traditional techniques.
