Pamplemousse, or the French word for grapefruit, may seem to be a funny name for stuffed animals!

Some of you, who are of an adult mindset, will immediately visualize the acidic fruit and its bitter taste. Others, who may have a more mischievous spirit, will imagine this word as a hug, a call to softness and warmth. Pamplemousse is a voyage to the heart of childhood, an introspection that will wake up the tender youthfulness sleeping within you.
Close your eyes… Breathe in its smell… Hold it against you… Caress the softness of its fur… And let yourself be transported to the whimsical land of childhood insouciance.

Do you feel the air of nostalgia that blooms within your beloved teddy bear?

Choosing the beautiful French countryside as the setting in which to birth our stuffed animals is a deliberate decision. We strive to avoid industrialization in order to maintain the magic and the quality of stuffed animals.

Located in Picardie, the farm de Puisieux is a true picture of vitality and freedom. Previously a witness to the First World War, the fields that surrounds the ancient walls are today symbols of renewal. These are now fields flowering with delicate and authentic prospects! The basin of Northern France has remained the cradle of the textile industry since the twelfth century. Therefore, priding itself on centuries of cultivated savoir-faire, or know-how, this region has built its reputation on the historical excellence of its mastery of these techniques.

The province of Saint-Quentin itself specialized in the weaving of wool and silk, giving way to the institution of “Le Bourget” in the 1920s. These premises, burdened with history, are the ideal settings to perpetuate French savoir-faire and to breathe new life into this art form. Working the land, like working with fabric, is a work of passion – a desire more than a need – and it is with this philosophy that the House of Pamplemousse will add its history to that of Puisieux.

We may not have the reputation of an established luxury brand, but we have the ancestral foundation. This is why we have a deep attachment to our French heritage and France-based manufacturing.

Our country holds a certain birthright in matters of savoir-faire that it would be a shame not to sustain these ancestral methods. Pamplemousse makes it a point of honor to carefully choose each of its components and artisans with each step meticulously performed in our workshop in order to best oversee the entire production process and guarantee the fine quality of our products.

This work of passion is what ensured our obtainal of the label “Guaranteed 100% French”: a true gauge of quality for our customers as well as an acknowledgement of our artisans.
