Founded in 1924, La Manufacture Cogolin continues its weaving traditions with a line of hand-knotted rugs now made in close collaboration with finely selected workshops based in Nepal.
As a preeminent French heritage brand, La Manufacture Cogolin left an important imprint on 20th century decoration and textiles, having produced hand-knotted and hand-woven rugs for designers and artists such as Christian Bérard, Jean Cocteau, Jules Leleu, André Arbus, and David Hicks. Projects include luxury villas, embassies, palaces such as the Grand Trianon at Versailles, and the passenger liners SS Normandie and SS Ile de France.
Today the Manufacture continues to produce hand-woven rugs in its French ateliers, and the recent collaborations with the Nepal workshops permit the continuation of its hand-knotted collections from its 1920-1980 archives, as well as the development of new contemporary collections and custom projects. We are proud to be certified with the STEP label, ensuring the health, safety, and working conditions for the employees of our Nepal partners.
