In the 20th Century, in spite of wars and other crises, modernization and creation continue.Today, Gien is both the number one producer of the highest quality earthenware in France, and a top-selling company both at the national and international levels. Its product lines are highly unique and distinguish themselves from other faience-earthenware with rich, refined and varied shapes and styles. Louis Grandchamp has headed the Gien Factory since January 2002.
Gien Earthenware is without any doubt the most prestigious French manufacturers of earthenware. Its fame comes from flawless know-how, and from striving to blend craftsmanship and industrial processes, bringing tradition and creativity together.
With this very philosophy, Mr. Louis Grandchamp and Mr. Bertrand Dambrine acquired this world-renowned factory in January of 2002.
