Since 1923, right in the land of menhirs and Celtic Fairies, in the heart of eternal Brittany, the Aert-Fil Company, perpetuates the tradition through the artisanal manufacture of iron mesh baskets. In Martigné-Ferchaud more precisely, near Rennes. There, Aude Aertgeerts develops a unique know-how that three generations passed on, adapting it to the needs and tastes of the time.
Now heading the Company, Aude is the heir to a difficult art that was thought forgotten: the weaving of the wire.
The braided iron basket was once used for all kinds of crops, especially the apple harvest for cider in Normandy. Hence its appellation of «Normand Basket »
A history of passion, a family history, a history of terroir. This basket of yesteryear is still entirely handmade, in her workshop, by Aude herself. A technique imported from Germany by his maternal grandfather, then transmitted to his father René Aertgeerts in 1976. She is now alone now, but strong of this unique heritage, Aude perpetuates this profession which seemed destined to die.
