The story of Mélusine’s Door
Heiress of the Lords of Lusignan, Mélusine is the daughter of King Elinas and the Fairy Pressine. She cursed Mélusine to be half a snake half a woman for the rest of her life because she had offended the king. No man should discover her condition. Yet, one day, Mélusine’s husband betrayed his promise not to try to unveil her secret. He found her in her bath with the tail of a snake. She cried out in despair and flew off the window. The famous French fairy is associated with building castles and water.
La Loupiote – veilleuses féeriques is a shop that was created in 2020 by the artist “La Loupiote”, a word which has a double meaning in French.
It refers to a small light or a small child. How fitting this name is for someone who creates night-lights in the shapes of small fairy houses !
These magical small lamps which are inspired by the enchanting world of the Faery Folk illuminate the eyes of young and old people alike. The fairy houses glimmer in a sweet light and bring a touch a dream at night fall in the room they decorate, as well as they soothe the ones who are afraid of the dark.
All of the night-lights are unique and handmade with many details, much care and patience. Each of them tells an authentic story and invites you into their worlds – they seem to come all the way from a mossy undergrowth, a flowery meadow, a haunted castle ou even on old library. One holds into their hands a piece of an intimate dream handmade in the workshop just for you.
