Made in France

France is probably the only country in the world where one can find the widest variety of artisanal know-how (some of which goes back several centuries), and where these multiple traditions have been preserved – and updated – as talent and inspiration sometimes team up with fashion and contemporary design.

Longwy, in the heart of Lorraine, in one of France’s great historic pottery centres, is where the firm Faïencerie et Emaux de Longwy was founded in 1798.

It possesses archives dating back to its founding: countless drawings, over 2000 gouache designs, over 1000 moulds, references of more than 1000 enamel colours, catalogued and sampled, and the formula for the medium.The firm’s reputation is based on its practice of two highly specific techniques which make it unique: the technique of cloisonné-enamel, which involves closing the enamel drops with fine black strokes (the medium) to produce a relief which captures the light and enhances the colours; and the production of enamels using the crucible-furnace technique.  One of the last remaining working firms in the sector, Faïencerie et Emaux de Longwy has directed its development towards contemporary and artistic creation. Its productions are distributed in luxury boutiques.
