Our Story

We’re a proudly British brand & split our time between the UK and France.

We got our start selling a curated collection of vintage clothes and antique lace fabrics in London's Portobello Market.

Our early collections sold in London were an assembly of antique and vintage laces, and the brand was quickly picked up by international retailers.

To bring Place Nationale to a wider audience we now use this knowledge to develop our own pure cotton fabrics - faithfully reproducing vintage laces and embroidery using traditional skills and techniques.

Our collections remain true to the authenticity & intricacy of vintage fabrics, and to the bohemian romantic 70s look that customers recognize and love about Place Nationale.
