French porcelain maker for 200 years
Installed in the Berry area (center of France) since 200 years, Pillivuyt is one of the oldest and prestigious french porcelain brand. Since the beginning, the company anchored itself into the local heritage.
Since its foundation, the brand owns the founder's name, Louis Charles Pillivuyt. It has stayed as a family business from its creation to the Second World War.
Over the years, Pillivuyt has distinguished itself at a national level and international level. From the United States of America to Australia, passing by the United Kingdom, Pillivuyt has been a global leader of french porcelain, since as early as 1823.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, Pillivuyt has created some products which are become emblematic today, like the "tasse Bistrot" or the "soupière Tête de Lion". Today, their porcelain masters perpetuate their know-how, which is rewarded in 100% french quality and manufacturing. This know-how has allowed Pillivuyt to receive the "Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant" title, (awarded for French authenticity).
Some traditional and centenary of shaping pieces practices have been conserved, like the hand made manufacturing.
The most valuable traditional and cultural manufacturing practices still remain in the factory, like preserving hand-made manufacturing. The "Or Blanc" which fascinated the European bourgeois from the 17th century is still being made today in Mehun-sur-Yèvre, using the same methods as they did as 300 years ago.
Mr Charles Pillivuyt Dedicated His Life and Business To Social Responsibility
During Pillivuyt's 200 years of existence, their desire has always been to contribute to improving society and the environment in which the company lives.
The manufacture is one of the first to invest in the integration of women in the workplace in France. Thanks to his title of Mayor, Charles Pillivuyt is one of the pioneers in the commitment to his community through social action.
Today, Pillivuyt has embarked on a process to formalise and integrate four pillars of CSR: Human Capital, Ethics, Environment and Economics.
