« airial » is a type of rural property that can be found in the Landes
de Gascogne, S-W of France.
A main house and a couple of farming buildings in the middle of a grass covered clearing in the shade of many centuries-old oaks, surrounded by a full of life huge pine tree forest stretching as far as the eye could see… A peaceful remote place located 25 miles far from the nearest commercial center. This is the place we’re happily living and working in.
No question that the theme of resources and supply is important for us. About manufactured and processed goods, the e-commerce is of great help. But we receive plenty of wild food and raw material we’ve learnt how to draw full benefit from.
We’d preferably reuse second hand wood or work with local wood for our woodcraft and carpentry works.
Along with current iron works, we design and build here steel structures and frames e.g. original sewing machine stands.
Paints, lacquers and varnish are homemade preferably brush or roller applied to minimize polluting emissions.
As for the mechanics part, we would not replace parts that could be restored paying no mind to the time, particularly with ones presenting a special interest (mechanical, historical or aesthetic).
We’ve brought back to a new active life sewing machines aged between 5 and 106 years, partially or fully reconditioned.
The machines we prepare work perfectly, sometimes better than originally. Our preps make them easier and more pleasant to use for a very long lifetime.
Along with the ideas of reliability and durability, the care we’re working with make our machines a sensible choice besides the actual productions that electronics integration, production cost control or planned obsolescence weakens.
Each sewing machine, should it be the simplest, offers a great deal of discovery putting a huge smile on our faces: coming from a past, kind of bottles thrown by some mechanics genius in the ocean of time.
Time and care are good friends and maturity brings a special taste to things and to a work too.
We do not do plenty but reasonably speaking, we do a pretty good job, greatly for the passion of doing that we love to share.
Visit us and realise how here, ecology is neither a marketing hook or a trendy notion. Sustainability is the essence of our creativity.
