About French Aubusson rugs
The History of La Savonnerie
The first so called Louis XIII carpet made in about 1660 were extraordinarily fine in texture with a blue or brown ground and floral decoration with Persian inspiration. Under the encouragement of Colbert, Louis IV began to revolutionize the French carpet production with the goal of rivaling carpet production in the Near East.
The Savonnerie tradition can be traced back to Henri IV (1533-1610). During his reign, he became concerned with the outflow of gold from France for the purchase of luxury objects abroad (objects like Tapestries and Carpets). In response, he established artisan workshops in the Louvre. These workshops enabled specially chosen craftsmen, including famous Parisian cabinet makers and bronze casters to exercise their skills.
This taste dates back to the 17th century when diplomatic visits from Ottoman and Persian Emissaries to the court of Louis XV were marked by a dazzling display of fabrics, textiles and carpets. Naturally such visits served as an opportunity for negotiations, ostentatious displays and the exchange of gifts. Sometimes a carpet was presented as a gift and subsequently reproduced.
After Louis IV lost interest in the Louvre, the carpets were rolled up and sent to the Garde-Meuble and brought out only on special occasions. The carpets survived the 18th century without mishap, but during the French Revolution, their high aesthetic quality caused them to be put up for auction or used as currency. Despite their fate during the French Revolution, these Savonnerie carpets have held their aesthetic quality and value through the centuries. Historians agree that the Savonnerie workshops and resulting.
In 1644, the decision was made to install one of the weaving workshops in an abandoned soap factory in the village of Chaillot, just outside of Paris. It was called Hospice de la Savonnerie. The management of the Factory was entrusted to two entrepreneurs; Pierre Dupont and Simon Lourdet. The “furnishings” made in the new workshops would eventually acquire the name “Savonnerie” after the original purpose of the savon factory, savon meaning soap. The most famous of these manufactories, La Savonnerie, was producing carpets for the court of Louis XIV that were technically, but not aesthetically indebted to Eastern tradition. The designs of these rugs were inspired by contemporary French decoration rather than Oriental carpet design.
Colbert did, in fact, revolutionize French carpet designs with a vast and unified series of carpets celebrating the ‘magnificent, glorious and harmonious’ governance of the Sun King, Louis XIV. During this time La Savonnerie worked mainly for the Royal Garde-Meuble which was in charge of the Palace furnishings. After Louis IV lost interest in the Louvre, the carpets were rolled up and sent to the Garde-Meuble and brought out only on special occasions. The carpets survived the 18th century without mishap, but during the French Revolution, their high aesthetic quality caused them to be put up for auction or
