The Brun de Vian-Tiran factory still resonates with the rhythmic harmony of the looms. For over 200 years, the French company has distinguished itself in the woolen trade and perpetuates, in an unbroken family tradition, a profession of passion and a rare tradition, that of the search for noble fibers selected from five continents. An exclusively French production which gives the first manufacturer of natural blankets in France a unique know-how, recognized worldwide. Back on the history of an exceptional manufacture, integrated into the French heritage

Birth of a brand

It is on the banks of the Sorgue in the town of Isle-sur-la-Sorgue in the Vaucluse department that the iconic Brun de Vian-Tiran bed linen brand is born. Created in 1808 by Charles Tiran and Pierre-Laurent Vian, his son-in-law, which at the time was only a small mill to appear to tread the fabrics developed quickly and became in less than a century an exceptional manufacture integrating all stages of manufacturing ... Research of wool fibers (Merino from France, South America or Australia, Camel from Asia, Alpaca from Peru, Lama from Bolivia, Yack, Cashmere from Iran, China and of Mongolia), carding, spinning, weaving, crushing, scraping and other finishes, making and quilting-quilting of quilts filled with woolen fibers. Eight generations later, the direct descendants of Vian and Tiran continue to perpetuate the woolen craft by offering a range of diversified products for all seasons and for all tastes: blankets, quilts, mattress toppers, throws, pillows, scarves and shawls, intended for demanding customers, looking for the beautiful, the rare and the useful. Many distinctions and labels mark the course of Brun de Vian-Tiran. Today, the factory is considered by all to be a reliable and quality company thanks to its exceptional products which help to work for the protection of animals, people and nature.

50 years of mohair at Brun de Vian-Tiran

Among its flagship products, wool mohair made from the fleece of the Angora goat from Asia Minor is a favorite. For fifty years, Brun de Vian-Tiran has been working with this natural fiber which combines thermal insulation, lightness, aesthetics and sensuality. Nothing obvious, however, in the choice of this material which, at first sight, surprises more than it seduces! Indeed, the interlacing of his threads provides transparency to the weaving which can cause concern, especially for the realization of blankets and throws. This however did not frighten the manufacture, which was conquered by its great insulating power. Thus, under the impetus of Louis Brun, the first honey-colored mohair blanket was developed in 1962. Many derivative products in the colors of sour candies will see the light of day: creation of mohair plaids in 1964 and collaboration with the stylist Coco Hellein in 2014 for the creation of a capsule collection on mohair. More than fifty years after having developed its first Mohair blankets, the Brun de Vian-Tiran company has declined since all its blankets and rugs that bring warmth and softness to interiors.
