Laguiole & French imports is the continuation of our previous venture which was put on hold in 2008. We closed “Les Cigales”, our South Melbourne shop, in 2008 to enjoy early years of parenthood. With our on line store we wish to resume the efforts began with “Les Cigales”, and share with Australia our love of France and its wonderful mediteranean region of Provence.
About our products
We import our Laguiole knives, table linen, handcrafted ceramics and vintage items directly from France. We do not go through distributors and source our stock directly from manufacturers. All our stock is imported from France by us and sold direct to public, hence our competitive prices.
Laguiole is neither a brand nor a trade mark. There are countless manufacturers who produce Laguiole knives around the world in perfect legality. The quality can vary immensely from the machine made plastic, melamine or resin handled Laguiole cutlery (broadly available in Australia) to the hand forged, luxurious, life lasting Laguiole knife crafted from precious materials and top grade steel.
Since 2012 we have proudly fulfilled hundreds of orders and have shipped our beautiful products to that many satisfied customers in Australia and overseas. We’ve also been chosen by restaurateurs and hospitality professionals looking for high quality Laguiole knives for their business.
