About Le Sud

In 1972 Nino Ferrer wrote the English song South, inspired by an American folk and country song he much admired, for a duo album with the singer Radiah Frye. The album was less successful than expected so his record company convinced him to release the song in French.
On its release the single sold over a million copies and the song very quickly became a French classic, topping the charts for two weeks in the summer of 1975.

Manufacturing

1. Drawing
Through a single stroke, The Line represents panoramas of cities, legendary mountain tops, or even mythical music tracks visually represented by their soundwaves.
2. Cutting
Lines are laser cut from metal sheets, with an extreme accuracy. This step is carried out in France by several partners, including a cooperative company.
3. Gilding
Lines are gilded with 24-carat gold via an electrolysis process ensuring agglomeration of gold on the line.
4. Boxes and silkscreen
Despite significant production volumes, The Line keeps an artisanal manufacturing approach for its packaging, and uses a silkscreen process to guarantee an original and qualitative result.
5. Packing
Final packing of products is then carried out within ESATs (work-based learning centers dedicated to people with disabilities).
