Tissage Moutet

Celebrating 150 years of craftsmanship, and passion for weaving, Tissage Moutet has been weaving threads, traditions, and stories since 1874 in the South-west of France. The family-owned business—now led by its fifth-generation, Benjamin Moutet (great-great-grandson of the founder, Jean-Baptiste Moutet) combines tradition with modernity: working with a team of in-house designers, Tissage Moutet creates complex patterns woven on jacquard looms. Tissage Moutet has been awarded two distinctions in France: the geographical guarantee “Indication Géographique Linge basque" which provides assurance that a product's manufacture is local and respectful of traditions, and “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant” which is a mark of recognition from the state which distinguishes French companies who combine tradition and modern innovation.

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), the influential 20th-century artist from Spain, revolutionized modern art through his visionary creativity and groundbreaking contributions. From his early prodigious talent to his co-founding of Cubism, Picasso's diverse body of work, including paintings, sculptures, and ceramics, continues to inspire artists worldwide.

Born on October 25, 1881, in Málaga, Spain, Picasso displayed remarkable artistic abilities from a young age. His artistic journey led him to experiment with various styles and techniques, leaving an indelible mark on the art world. Picasso's artistic career can be divided into distinct periods, each characterized by its own unique style and thematic focus. Notably, his Blue Period, marked by melancholic and somber tones, reflected his deep empathy for human suffering. Subsequently, the Rose Period brought a shift towards brighter colors and more optimistic subjects.

However, it was with the advent of Cubism that Picasso's revolutionary artistic vision reached its zenith. Alongside Georges Braque, he co-founded this groundbreaking movement, which shattered traditional notions of representation. Through fragmented forms and multiple perspectives, Picasso challenged the boundaries of art and delved into the abstract realm. This period marked a turning point in the history of art, solidifying Picasso's status as a visionary and innovator. His unparalleled creativity and tireless experimentation continue to inspire generations of artists, cementing his legacy as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.
