100 years of history
For more than a century, Tissage de Luz has woven its history with colored thread and cotton. A company born from the passion of a family with a textile fiber which, generation after generation, transmits its love of the beautiful, the good and the sustainable. It was in 1908 that Jean-Baptiste Gouze created his first mechanical workshop in Gestas. On his craft, "Mantis to oxen", simple and striped fabrics which are used in the country to cover oxen and protect them from the sun and parasites. In parallel, fabrics for sandals are woven, those dedicated to clothing and table linen. He moved to Bayonne in 1932 in order to expand his clientele and especially to recruit qualified workers, very present in the region. It was at this time that he incorporated colors and shades in his tableware creations, while introducing his son to the love of beautiful linen. After two gold medals obtained at the Lyon fair, its products are starting to sell in department stores in Paris! During the 2nd World War, table linen will be left aside in favor of clothing, whose needs will increase. The company, however, slowly collapsed with the textile crisis until it closed its doors in 1977. It was not until fifteen years before Maïté Fanfare - Jean-Baptiste's granddaughter - had the audacity to relaunch the business. Tissage de Luz will be reborn under its current name and will develop over the years, until today becoming a company recognized for its creativity and the quality of its products.
