European Traditions in Linens and Housewares

Our discoveries along the byways of France and Beyond



Riquewihr Gate Tower in eastern France on the Rhine RiverGallic Traditions is a continuing story of our enthusiasm for the people, places and traditional French Décor products of Europe, from France and beyond. These include, but are not limited to, French table linens and tablecloths, kitchen linens, dishware and glassware, elegant bed linens, woven tapestries, French lithographs, and much more!Originally we explored the region known in early history as Gaul. Gaul is located south and west of the Rhine River and is bounded on the north by the North Sea and on the south by the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees.  Hence our name Gallic Traditions.Our major focus is on the fine French linens and other products from this area. However, we now offer linens and more from Germany and Scandinavia as well. The entire area has a rich and varied history as well as remarkably varied geography, and unique traditions reflecting their language and culture. Every road brings new vistas and opportunities for new products reflecting those traditions.

Our online French Décor catalog will help you find and purchase traditional products for the home which reflect the regional traditions, warmth and beauty of each town and village we have visited. Please select your areas of interest from the index to learn more about the products, and where they come from. We endeavor to provide a complete selection of products which can be ordered from our major suppliers, as well as provide in-stock availability of popular styles and sizes.  We also include articles of interest and links to our principal suppliers and the towns they occupy.

We hope you will enjoy our story and find this web site helpful and will visit it often as we add new information and fine French products we have discovered and used. Our goal is to provide products and services that reflect our motto: Friendship – Hospitality – Quality
