Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (French label : Living Heritage Company)
Located in the Loiret county, in the Loire Valley, the pretty town of Gien is the one that, for two centuries, hosts the most famous faience of the Old Continent. Heir to unparalleled craftsmanship, the Faïencerie has stayed true to tradition over the years. The Gien pottery is still steadfastly "local" in the noblest sense of the term, controlling the whole of its manufacturing process, from the selection of "noble" raw materials - varieties of sand, clay and kaolin - to the development of the clay paste through to the finished products, in compliance with aesthetic choices merging classicism and innovation. This constant quest for excellence and creation has brought the Faïencerie de Gien into the coveted circle of Living Heritage Enterprises, set up in 2005 by France to distinguish and protect establishments that are focussed on the authenticity of exceptional products that contribute to the prestigious renown of the nation.
