Jules Pansu, the son of a modest weaver from Voiron, had a dream to design and manufacture his own fabrics. After seven years of traveling by train all over Europe and Russia, selling silks for a company from Lyon, he knew the trade and was confident he could create the highest quality fabrics--fabrics that would add to the elegance and beauty of any furnishing. His dream came true-- in 1878--launching a family-owned dynasty that, 133 years later, still remains one of the most respected purveyors of luxury fabrics around the world.
Today, Jules Pansu creates some of the most extraordinary fabrics, tapestries and home accessories from the company's workshops in Halluin, a French town on the Belgian border.
And while the richly-woven fabrics still remain a staple of the business, the compay has made a name for itself with its tapestries, pillows and most recently bags and totes.
Each piece is exquisitely crafted of a very tight-set jacquard, with designs that are to many works of art. In fact, Jules Pansu is the first and only weaver permitted to create a collection from the paintings of Pablo Picasso.
Working within the stringent guidelines of the Picasso Administration, overseen by Claude Picasso, son of the legendary artist, the company perfectly replicted Picasso's painting on a range of tapestries, handbags and pillows.
In addition to the Picasso line of products and its classic line, Jules Pansu offers 50 unique pillows from its Deco line, along with reproductions of works or monuments from around Paris.
