Plissés de France defines itself as an artisan-pleater. Innovator of unique pleating projects, halfway between artisanal creation and industrial production, the atelier is located in Ille-et-Vilaine and is involved from the early models through to the final fabrication, with a view towards creating in interface with contractors.

In 2013, Plissés de France combined its know-how with those of Confection de Sully in order to produce a limited edition of dresses designed by Anahide Saint-André and presented at Made in Town.
