The Pansu’s weaving workshop has been established in 1878 by Jules Pansu. Settled in the city of Halluin, north of France, birthplace of the tapestry for over 600 years, the Pansu’s workshop has become the reference of the tapestry “Made in France”. A team of highly qualified designers and weavers, among whom three "Best craftsmen in France" awarded, restore for you the masterpieces and patterns which have decorated centuries of History of France and Europe. More than 125 years after its creation, the workshop continues to work on true Jacquard looms. They also keep creating their own brand-new models as well as readapting famous paintings, more modern, but always with the same traditional and unequalled know-how.
