Is Vendela Kirsebom the real Comtesse de Bragelonne?

I blush sometimes when I hear my lovely customers struggle with the names I have given to my different bed linen collections. ‘Comtesse de Bragelonne’ is one of them.
 
To be perfectly honest I’m not sure it was the smartest commercial move I’ve made so far in my efforts to share my passion for beautifully made fabrics:
No one likes to feel foolish even if being Norwegian there is of course no reason why you should be able to pronounce unfamiliar words.
I hope those unusual French names don’t get in the way of my desire to let all quality-conscious Norwegians enjoy the feeling of lying in between soft Egyptian cotton sheets.
 
The Comtesse de Bragelonne is actually an invention of mine inspired by some of my favourite teenage readings by Alexandre Dumas. In fact, the Vicomte de Bragelonne is one charming character in Alexandre Dumas’ final volume of D'Artagnan historical Romances covering the year 1660.
 
I wasn’t born a hundred years ago but I’m old enough to look back at my childhood with sentimentality. Then I see pastel images of a sixteen-year old me, wandering the streets of Paris from one art exhibition to another, water-colouring countryside landscapes and reading historical novels until my eyes hurt. Let’s not let the entire truth get in the way of a good story now, shall we?
 
A few weeks ago, the adorable Vendela Kirsebom came into my shop and went home with that favourite Comtesse de Bragelonne collection of mine. I just love how its delicate ladder stitch detail can immediately create a relaxing atmosphere of timeless elegance in any interior whether traditional of super contemporary.

So perhaps I have found the real Comtesse de Bragelonne afterall? Thank you Vendela for choosing to sleep in my Egyptian cotton satin bed linen!
