LA MANUFACTURE DE DIGOIN

Settled on the edge of the Canal du Centre, South Burgundy, the sleeping beauty was reborn from her ashes in 2014 under the impetus of a former Parisian who gave her back her letters of nobility. Stoneware and pottery, still hand-shaped but modernized, emerge from the factory and are now exported all over the world.

Story


Digoin factory is the story of an artisanal family business founded in 1875 in this Burgundy region known as the “ceramic valley”, where around forty factories with specific know-how (tile factory) , bricks, tiling) officiate at the beginning of the XXth century. The company's specialty is sandstone, a material composed of natural mineral substances extracted in France, and whose tightness and strength were highly appreciated in the food and pharmaceutical industry of the last century, ensuring their products exceptional conservation. Everyday utilitarian objects have always been fashioned there: vinegar, salting tubs, mustard pots, terrines, pitchers, yoghurt pots, among others ... Unfortunately, the arrival of glass and plastic in the 1970s, as well as the relocation and lack of public interest in this material which had become too "rustic", forced the manufacture to shut down in the 2000s.

Rebirth


The good fairy who will save the Manufacture de Digoin is called Corinne Jourdain Gros. Former senior executive of a large advertising group, she wrote a dissertation - "The French Manufactures of the Art of Living and Their Ancestral Know-How: Between Myths and Realities" - and challenges herself to save the Manufacture de Digoin then in judicial liquidation. Accompanied by a group of ten investors from among others the world of lifestyle, distribution and architecture, including Bernard Reybier CEO of Fermob and Alexis Roux de Bézieux founder of Causses, she will modernize the catalog in order to attract new customers and respond to current fashions.

Le Jardin Digoin

We really like this collection inspired by the vegetable garden and whose major advantage is frost resistance. Drawn from the archives of the manufacture, it offers a variety of vases, jars, flowerpots or cups in harmony with plants and minerals. The Digoin garden has also been enriched with a collection of scented candles inspired by the scents of the vegetable garden in collaboration with one of the last wax manufacture, Bougies La Française.



La manufacture de Digoin offers traditional French know-how and has been able to reinvent itself and adapt to contemporary design codes. Through its history and its collections, the manufacture takes on the air of fairy tales that enchant us and we wish it still very long hours of creation.
