Meaning & Origin of the name

`What does it mean ?' is quite surprisingly the question I (Germain Le Chapelain, founder) get asked the most frequently about the company.

The answer is: not much! At least to me.

The geographic district in Brittany where I am from is sometimes informally referred to as the `Landes of Lanvaux'.
It is an area somewhat distinctive of its surroundings, which as to do with the geological formation underneath it.

`Lande' is a french common noun designating an uncultivated area. It somewhat carries the connotation that the area is not cultivable, or at least not worthily.

As for `Lanvaux', I don't know what it means nor comes from. Perhaps was it referring to the name of the region, or a broader one encompassing the moors themselves.
