ABOUT US

OUR HEART BEATS TO A TWO-STEP

Our products are inspired by Francis X Pavy’s visual vocabulary and iconic imagery­—aka Pavicons. Textiles and wallpaper are derived from his original artwork and he designs and hand paints every pattern and colorway in our collection. Like Francis’s paintings, our products provide visual narratives that add to the traditional aspects of Cajun and Creole culture. We hope to give our customers a personal connection and a true appreciation for South Louisiana.

In the spirit of artisanship, all art objects and prints are produced
as small-batch, limited-editions.

ABOUT OUR ARTIST, FRANCIS X PAVY 

Francis X. Pavy is a painter and mixed-media artist known for retelling the traditional stories and folklore of South Louisiana through a visual vocabulary of mystic iconography and vibrant colors. Pavy’s career as an artist began as a ceramist before working in glass for many years, eventually transitioning to brush painting, mixed media, and block printing. Common themes in his work include Cajun and Creole music, folk-mysticism, and the native flora and fauna of the Gulf Coast. Francis’ work is represented in galleries around the United States and his work is held in national and international collections.

FOR THE LOVE OF SOUTH LOUISIANA 

Our mission is to promote the cultural traditions of South Louisiana through our products, empower our local artists and protect the environmental legacy of the Gulf South. We aspire to use sustainable practices and materials through every step of our production and operations. Until then, we plan to donate a portion of sales to causes that protect Louisiana’s environment and its artistic and cultural economy.
