French Merchants


St. Roch was founded in the same region near Lyon where Joseph-Marie Jacquard invented the Jacquard loom and weaving method in the early 1800's. For more than half a century St. Roch has carried on the heritage of excellence in the production of fine woven table and kitchen linens with designs that acknowledge both the traditional and the contemporary, the elegant and the whimsical. The quality of the raw materials, permanence of colors and appealing beauty make for products that have stood the test of time and use in homes across France for generations.
