It was in Alsace that the great history of textile printing was written. Even before 1759, when Louis XV issued the decree which allowed its full development from a craft to a prestigious royal industry. At Ribeauvillé, in the hollow of a valley, the Manufacture d’Impression sur Etoffes has been refining and perfecting its knowledge of fabric printing for more than two centuries. Uncompromising in the choice of fabrics: the finest cotton yarns are woven into a peach-like satin: an inimitable talent to make the colours shimmer, with sometimes more than twenty nuances in the same design. And constant creativity in the choice of patterns, inviting us to a table which is so much more than just a decorative object?
Still today, the Beauvillé collection is produced entirely in France and since 2009 is proud to display the label «Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant» (Living Hertitage Company).
