Whatever happened to all the lavender?
It has taken a while, but with the help of a neighbour, who takes her embroidery to country fairs in the area, we have finally produced a first lot of lavender bags filled with Le Ripe lavender (DOC) which will be gifted to guests.
This lot is in a traditional style: soon there will be a contemporary version as well.
