In an ancient 17th century farm building nested in the Lot Valley, Aveyron, Hervé and Monika Liné-Gölz founded the Atelier du Réquista in 1995. Their creative skills graze and complement each other to such an extent that they achieve the unlikely marriage of knife making and fashion design. Le Réquista is the melting pot from which their creations emerge and meet success at the same scale as their talents : borderless.


Drawing on this impulse and lifted by her bountiful energy Monika now sustains the dynamics of Le Réquista. She regularly leaves her workshop to present her creations at professional shows (Paris, Munich) or at art fairs all over France. Her long lasting and faithful followers never miss these opportunities.


Twice a year (in summer and before Christmas) the doors of Atelier du Réquista open wide. Monika then presents her new creations and  a different designer is invited to join her on each of these open house days which are above all celebrations of togetherness and elegance.


Monika also finished new projects to complement the history of Réquista with new chapters. Part of our beautiful home will now welcome tourists in a beautiful cottage, imbued with charm and creativity :
