140 years of creating stoneware
La Manufacture des Grès et Poteries de Digoin was at the beginning a hand-crafted and familial business found in 1875, along the central canal in Burgundy.
Around 1900, the area of Digoin and Paray-le-Monial, known as the ‘Ceramic Valley’ – was home to about forty factories, each one had specific skills (making roof tiles, bricks, decorative tiles, etc.).
The stoneware clay, which is prepared entirely inside the manufacture’s workshops, is made of natural mineral materials from France (Burgundy, Auvergne, Charente and Île-de-France). Objects come to life in those Burgundian workshops thanks to the expertise of passionate workers. All pieces are shaped and enameled by hand making them unique.
