The reindeers of Font De Gaume is just one of the vast 200 different images in this cave. One of the finest depictions  the painting of a male reindeer bending forward at the forehead of a smaller, female reindeer.

Prehistoric people living in the Dordogne Valley first settled in the mouth of Font-de-Gaume around 25,000 BC. The cave mouth was inhabited at least sporadically for the next several thousand yearsThe paintings date from around 17,000 BC, during the Magdalenian period. Many of the cave’s paintings have been discovered in recent decades.

First discovered as a locus of art in 1901, the cave has a high, narrow main gallery and several side passages. It contains about 230 engraved and painted figures, including 82 bison, horses, mammoths, reindeer, a woolly rhinoceros, and a wolf. Its most famous images are a leaping horse and a scene in which a male reindeer licks the forehead of a female.

Care Guide

Turn the garments inside out.

Wash them in cold water with a mild detergent (hand wash or gentle cycle on your washing machine at 30-40°C or 86-104°F)

This is very important: DO NOT USE FABRIC SOFTENER! It will eventually ‘eat’ the paint away.

After washing lay your item flat to dry or hang it up, to drip dry. Do not put the painted side towards direct sunlight.

Nevertheless that linen does not need ironing, because one can wear it “raw”, if it gets too “crushed”, then turn the item inside out before ironing it. Please do not use steam on the painted part. Put a cloth or a sheet of baking paper in-between.

Do not use bleach!

Do not Dry Clean!
