Brittany ~ Land of Legends

Ys (or Is) the legendary breton city swallowed by the waves

Ys the Armoricaine Atlantis

A prophecy says that when Paris is in its turn swallowed by the seas, Ys will emerge again from the depths…

The legend also tells us that the city of Ys was the most beautiful capital in the world, that Lutèce was named Paris because ” Par Ys ” in breton means ” like Ys “

And you… tell us a legend about the city of Ys or the city of Paris…

Our Ormeau or sea ear is listening…

The French Abalones

Abalone Seashells

For our work on Mother-of-Pearl, our main source of Abalone shells in Brittany is local fishing & the farm on Groix Island : Groix Haliotis

 

We are eco-responsible : we value a regional product as French abalone by using the Mother-of-pearl from the shell which is most often not used
