Jules Pansu Tapestry: "La Lecture" Picasso
Jules Pansu founded his namesake company in 1878 on the rue du Faubourg Poissonnière in Paris. Today, 135 years later, the company is still located on the original site.
Monsieur Pansu began designing tapestries and textiles in the mid-1800's. With manufacturing facilities located in Halluin, French Flanders, Pansu joined a community of tapestry artisans with a rich 600-year history in the region.
In 1919, his son, also named Jules, succeeded him. He was followed by his three sons, who joined the family business in 1963. With a four-generation legacy of designing and manufacturing tapestries in the fine French tradition, the Jules Pansu Company is continuing to expand in France and abroad.
