French Connections


Since 2000, French Connections has offered an eclectic variety of fabrics, antiques, table linens, art, and crafts from France, Mexico, and about 20 African countries. They mix the colors and designs of France and many African countries where owners Jacques and Wendy Dufour have lived, worked, and traveled.

They’re proud supporters of sustainable, ethically-traded products of the highest quality, sourced directly from artists, artisans, and small manufacturers from around the globe.

Online Shopping & Returns

Due to the increasingly high cost of shipping, their online store is limited to items that they can ship at a reasonable price. Please contact them if you are interested in furniture, large sculptures, and yard art. You do not need a PayPal account to make your payment – PayPal also processes credit cards with no account needed.

Returns must have prior approval by phone or email. No returns will be accepted after 21 days. Shipping charges are not refundable if the order is returned unless an error was made on our part. Fabric yardage is returnable with a 10% restocking fee. Fabric that has been washed, cut, or altered in any way is not returnable.
