    Designed and manufactured in France with pride to the same exacting standards for the last 43 years!
    Brand New Factory Sealed
    2  9/16 " - 65 mm long

    In 1969, Monsieur Violet, a very skilled metal worker in the petrochemical industry in the South of France, heeded his wife's remark that even though plastic clothes pegs were certainly more colorful than the traditional wooden ones, both types were as prone to breaking, rusting and leaving stains on laundry as the other.
    After experimenting with many different designs, Monsieur Violet hand-wrought the first ever stainless steel clothes pegs out of an old washing machine drum salvaged from his local scrap yard.
    Thanks to Madame Violet's enthusiastic response to her husband ingenious invention, the word quickly spread around them that the "Violet's pegs" were simply the best.
    Orders followed and Monsieur Violet was soon kept busy hand-making pegs from salvaged stainless steel before finally quitting his job and setting up his own company.  
    Today, Monsieur Violet's son uses industrial-grade stainless steel and modern metal press to continue the family business started by his father.
    The production methods have certainly been modernised but the same pride is taken in making the best unbreakable, rust proof, life-time warranty stainless steel clothes pegs in the world.
    And Madame Violet still uses the very first pegs hand-wrought by her late husband 43 years ago.
