Robert Four Manufacture Royal Heiress

The Robert Four Manufacture perpetuates the Aubusson tapestry know-how, one of the royal Aubusson tapestry factory, which was created by Jean-Baptiste Colbert in the 16th century.

The know-how, which is wide, of the Robert Four Manufacture has been labeled Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant since 2006. It makes Jacquard tapestry, seat tapestry, serigraphy, etc. The manufacture restores and reproduces antique tapestries and makes contemporary artworks from artists. In 2007, the Robert Four Manufacture opened a co-op program to teach students the licier job (weaver).

In 2014, Made in Town, in partnership with the Institut Français de la Mode and with the financial help of Fondation d’entreprise Hermès, carry out three documentary movies about tapestry know-how and the particularities of Aubusson tapestry, on the Cité Internationale de la Tapisserie et de l’Art Tissé request.
