Established in Vallabrègues in the county of the Gard, Atelier Vime lies at the heart of the rich history of wickerwork developed in this Provençal village. Since time immemorial, the wicker culture and craft have been the main trades occupying the people of this peninsula bordering the Rhône river, between Arles and Saint Rémy de Provence. Vallabrègues had as many as 450 wicker workers out of its 1,800 inhabitants during the 18th century.

The historic arts & craft trade was extinct when the "Hotel Drujon" was acquired by the creators of Atelier Vime. To this day, numerous records still attest to the high level of craftsmanship cultivated on the property for close to 150 years. 

The workshop was installed in 1878 in this compact mansion, featuring a large courtyard bordered by a typical Uzès-styled facade. Originally built in 1730 for a family of notables, the building overlooked the Rhone river and employed numerous people, with three soaking ponds for the fresh wicker. The Atelier Vime Editions collection calls on the expertise of the wicker and rattan craftsmen and cultivators and is a direct contribution to the preservation of the local ecosystems.
