DES RÊVES

The project  

With a rich history and know-how dating back to the 18th century, the earthenware industry in Desvres in the Pas-de-Calais in France was flourishing and employed thousands of people locally.  
Slowly, at the beginning of the 21st century, large-scale production ceased and know-how was less and less shared.
This project is that of a desire: that of reindustrialising, thanks to the creation of a new production site, starting from a workshop and then from a real factory. 
This project is a tribute to the tradition and history of a prosperous and proud period during which the manufactures of Desvres enjoyed international renown. 
This project is a new chance, a new energy, the rebirth of earthenware firmly anchored in its time and its modernity. 
This project is the valorization of the earth, a noble and durable material to make beautiful pieces of tableware. 

A factory in Desvres

A place of production

 

A place of training

 

A place of wonder

 

Working earthenware again in Desvres

It's making something beautiful, something useful, something durable. 

It's bringing together a team of enthusiasts, who each in their fields will bring the best to this project.

It means creating activity, long-term employment and rediscovered know-how. 

It is putting this city back on the map of the great French earthenware factories. 

 

Earthenware objects

For the timeless pleasure of beautiful tableware and beautiful earthenware utensils; 

For the pleasure of being together, of laying out a nice table, of entertaining, of being well at home, of pleasing; 

For the tableware to summon and create memories through transmission.

 

Des Rêves

The dream of a rebirth: relaunching a know-how.  

The dream of a tribute: to celebrate the decorations executed by the artisans of Desvres over the centuries.

The dream of familiar settings: revisiting settings to arouse new emotions.

The dream of harmony: gathering around the warmth of a table.  

The dream of the present moment: to live and create new memories.

 

Marion

Before becoming the invested entrepreneur she is today, Marion worked in the world of construction and real estate. For almost fifteen years, she worked for the world leader in concessions and construction, where she held various management positions.  

In July 2022, Marion decided to change course and pursue a dream close to her heart: to become an entrepreneur in your native territory. She is now at the head of the earthenware Des Rêves, a company she founded with the ambition of reviving the earthenware industry in Desvres. It's a new adventure for Marion, but she brings the same determination and the same strategic vision that have marked her career so far.  

Each piece from the Des Rêves workshop is a testimony to the fusion of old and new, a celebration of local know-how, history and the timeless pleasure of fine tableware. Marion is committed to putting Desvres back on the map of French earthenware, and each piece she creates is a step towards realizing this vision.
