Accessories / Bernardaud


Bernardaud’s great industrial and artistic adventure began in 1863 in Limoges, a region possessing kaolin, fresh water and forest, which are all needed to make porcelain. Its story began when two industrialists from Limoges opened a factory to meet increased demand for porcelain dinnerware services, burning coal for fuel and shipping their product to market via the newly built railroad. As Bernardaud expanded to produce on an industrial scale, it continued to work according to the high standards of a craft based on artisan processes.Today, Bernardaud continues to modernize while ensuring that rare techniques, such as incrustation, continue to be used for special orders. Its aim is to preserve valuable technical skills, encourage a taste for innovation, and continue to emphasize creativity.
