Pierre Frey & Le Manach
In 2014, the publisher of upholstery fabrics, wallpaper and furniture Pierre Frey, who is very attached to the heritage of French textile heritage, will take over the Manufacture Le Manach and thus safeguard the heritage of this bastion of unique know-how. Founded in 1829, Le Manach represents the quintessential French style, a subtle blend of French tradition and exoticism. It draws its inspiration from the silks of the Far East and Central Asia, from the printed cottons of the 18th century but also from the Art Deco period and its ethnic motifs. In 1928, Georges Le Manach developed a new jacquard weaving process, Les Toiles de Tours. The first collection, of African inspiration, is presented on the occasion of the Colonial Exhibition. A series of geometrically inspired designs will follow. On the strength of its success, it is then classic velvets and brocatelles that will be transposed into Toiles de Tours, giving them a new life more in line with 20th century decorative practices.
Today, this collection, which includes more than 130 customizable designs in more than 220 colours, is woven on demand in the Pierre Frey factory in the North of France with the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company) label. An autonomy of manufacture which allows for personalization and absolute exclusivity.
