WHAT WE LOVE
Gien, or Faïencerie de Gien, is a pottery producing earthenware tableware. Founded in 1821 in the Loire Valley, the pottery is known for its white textured dinnerware and hand-painted designs. With a history spanning two centuries, Faïencerie de Gien is known for its production of bespoke dinner services bearing family crests for many prominent French and European houses as well as the manufacturer of the iconic tiles for the Parisian Metro stations.
Faïencerie de Gien also offer the possibility to personalize plates with monograms or coats of arms, and the ability to choose plate designs from archive material dating back to the 19th century.
"Each and every stage of production is carried out, to this day, exclusively at the manufacturing facility in Gien, in the Loire Valley, using know-how spanning two centuries."
