As happy as a lark, this delicious scent of cupboard and of swilled down tile floors, recall the washing days of George Sand’s heroes and the Parisian laundry maids. Between stacks of embroidered linen sheets on a lady’s festooned bed, lavender and orange diffuse a smell of lightness and neatness.

A "lavandière", or laundress, was a woman who washed linens by hand, in a stream, or at a wash house. The laundry was thrown into the water, rubbed with ash, rinsed, twisted, and folded repeatedly. It was then beaten with a wooden instrument to wring out as much water as possible. It was then placed in a basket and taken somewhere to dry. In Paris, members of the laundress guild worked in dozens of wash houses, called “wash-sheds”, that were moored in the Canal St. Martin. Despite the hard labor, the laundresses, or washer-maids, were joyful, chattering, and teasing amongst themselves.
