The Gien Faiencerie, a 21st century factory
combining tradition with modernity
Founded in 1821, the Faiencerie is located
in Gien, in the Loire Valley at the very heart
of France. The location offered all that was
needed to make Faience : sand and water from
the river Loire, and wood from the Sologne
forest nearby. The Faience gained renown
during the 19th century largely through two
main products : dinner services bearing the
coats of arms of prominent families of the
European aristocracy, and... tiles made for the
Paris Metro.
Two hundred years on, Gien Faience is a
jewel in the crown of French decorative arts,
enjoying international acclaim. It is a member
of the exclusive Comité Colbert organisation,
a prestigious group bringing together major
names in French Luxury and Art de vivre.
