Let’s take a trip to Paris. Like a postcard in memory of a romance, or as a way to discover Paris, one cannot resist the pleasure of treating oneself to this service, or of offering it as a delightful gift.
Two centuries of craftsmanship go into the making of a single piece of Gien faience. Handcrafted in a converted convent perched on the Loire River, every stage of creation takes place in Gien, France: from locally sourced raw materials to authentic handcrafted designs and final production. Gien faience is fired at traditionally lower temperatures, giving it a unique richness and depth of color. Stronger than pottery or ceramics, Gien products are designed for everyday tableware.
Located near the Loire Valley castles, the Faïencerie de Gien has been synonymous with prestigious faience tableware and decorative objects since its founding in 1821. Gien pieces are renowned for their warm white clays decorated with traditional motifs reminiscent of the French countryside.
