Recognised expertise

In 2013, the company was awarded the EPV (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant) label. The EPV label is awarded for 5 years by the French Ministry of the Economy, Industry and Employment, and is the only state distinction associated with the recognition of exceptional know-how. This label represents a genuine guarantee of quality on the international stage, and rewards the exceptional craftsmanship of its staff.

EPV-labelled companies are characterised by their possession of a specific economic heritage based on manufacturing experience, the application of rare know-how based on the mastery of traditional or highly technical techniques, and their attachment to a particular region.

Design, weaving and manufacturing all take place on the same site. This proximity is a guarantee of quality and responsiveness.

The technique

The Jacquard loom was developed by Joseph Marie Jacquard in the early 19th century. Using a complex technique, the Jacquard Tissage des Flandres loom can interweave up to 65 threads per cm2, producing a wide range of textures, designs and colours. Although the number of colours on each loom is limited to 7 or 8, the crossing of threads offers a whole range of shades and nuances to create an infinite number of colours.
