Behind the brand of Biches & Bûches is a little Scandinavian family settled in France, in the beautiful region of Burgundy.

Astrid writes about her woolen and little knitting story 🐚🤎
My Norwegian grandmother taught me how to knit when she came to visit, I was about six years old, and it was something that I really enjoyed during all my teenage years. I would spend hours and hours carefully selecting my next knitting project, looking in magazines, pattern books and catalogues, over and over again. Then came the choice of yarn quality and colors which was very exciting and the best part of the process. I liked the touch of the yarn, I liked the possibility of choosing between a lot of colors and I worked mostly with pure wool.
I love the feeling of wool of the purest quality. I enjoy looking at the structure and the color shades, and color changes within the shades. I like to watch a project grow between my hands. Sometimes, the result is not as expected, so I start over again. When I design new models, I unravel a lot. My purpose is to obtain the whole idea I have in my head, combining the shape, the general feeling to the design, the color combination, the stitch pattern. Designing is about matching all this.
Certain color combinations simply make me feel happy and peaceful so I try to recreate this sensation with the colors I choose. Many years ago, we found an old barn, built of stone, in the very southern part of Burgundy and we started to refurbish it completely.
This is where we have our Biches & Bûches Atelier, in the middle of nature. It is where I find inspiration and create. The house is filled with yarn and until recently we had our warehouse here. In December 2020 we delocated the warehouse and the order fullfilling part so I can concentrate on the other aspects of Biches & Bûches.
And Biches & Bûches is of course not just me alone. Caroline started writing a lot and sharing the backstage of our little company when she started joining Biches & Bûches back in 2015. After studies in Photography in Photography and Design and a 5-year-long experience in Paris as a Project Manager, today Caroline is a 360 partner of Biches & Bûches, the photographer and the brand & digital designer. In the beginning, Louise spent most of her summers with us wearing warm sweaters, so we could take pictures of our designs. Today, you will find her modelling on different photos, along the side of beautiful Amalie, a grand cousin to the girls. All us together, we worked to make it into a real brand, the kind of brand we would love and that defined us and our style best.
Warmly, Astrid.
