Brun de Vian Tiran Cashmere
Brun de Vian-Tiran, the leading French manufacturer of natural blankets and throws has existed for over two centuries in an uninterrupted family tradition.
In 1808, Charles Tiran and his son-in-law Pierre-Laurent Vian set up a wool mill to work fabrics on the banks of the Sorgue river in the South of France. The wool industry was already important in the region, which had been a Papal territory until 1791. Sheep farming, teasle and madder cultivation, and quarrying of fuller's earth had been carried out there for centuries, and the Fontaine de Vaucluse, the largest spring in Europe, supplied the water and powered the machines needed by the industry.
