Every year, the city of Mulhouse creates a new exclusive fabric pattern by commissioning a local designer to make a new design. Each year, it is used in artisanal table and kitchen linen (napkins, tablecloths, table sets, aprons), produced locally and given the specific label of “Alsace terre textile”.
