Madame de Pé is an initiative of C.Note (www.cnote.nl), a company in Amsterdam that designs products & services to improve people's lives.

The idea to design a better looking alternative to the yellow rain poncho came out of one of our creative sessions 2 years ago and has captured our hearts & imaginations ever since.

Our muse and namesake is Madame de Pompadour, Louis XV's mistress from 1745 to 1759. She kept us laughing with her bouffant hairdos, extravagant gowns and incredible story. And we love that her real name was Jeanne Antoinette Poisson (aka Mrs. Fish).
