Reading the Visitors’ Book of Cogolin carpet factory will take you around the world in 80 signatures!
This unassuming building with green shutters has produced unique pieces which have gone on to adorn the SS Normandie ocean liner, the Grand Trianon in Versailles, the Whitehouse, the Elysée Palace, many ministries and palaces, foreign embassies, yachts and private jets, villas, and function rooms in luxury hotels.
And work is still carried on here today to the sound of the clattering looms (which date from 1880), and cylinders and “cartoons” are still used by the weavers to produce carpets of the very highest quality, made exclusively by hand and to order. While respecting traditions, the artisans at the factory also work to develop new ranges, taken up by some of the world’s leading interior designers.
Showrooms: 6 Boulevard Louis-Blanc, Cogolin, and 30 Rue des Saints-Pères, Paris, 7th arrondissement.
