The art of being in love…

Do you know the story of our founding couple, Yvette and Pierre Debain? Their encounter is worthy of the great romantic movies and takes us to the 1950s, during the Algerian revolution. Without ever having met, the couple exchanged love letters for more than 18 months: “.His name was Pierre, a name I have always loved. He was French and an artist, he lived in the desert, a country that had always inspired me, and above all, he wrote beautiful letters,” says Yvette in her biographical account published in 2003.

Let’s take the cue of our founding couple, Yvette and Pierre Debain, and share the happiness of being in love!
