The Braquenié Company is probably the most famous tapestry, rug and furniture fabric creator of the 19th century.
In 1858, the Braquenié brothers, Alexandre and Charles-Henri, bought the Démy-Doineau company, a Parisian fabric store that existed since the18th century and owned a Parisian workshop. The Braquenié brothers then opened a workshop in Aubusson and another in Malines, and soon attracted the poshest clientele of Paris. They were official suppliers for Napoléon III in France (photo2), and were also suppliers for the King of Belgium and the German Emperor.
After the Second World War, only the Braquenié Company was able to supply to historical monuments, the fabrics and tapestries necessary to restore the French castles that had suffered so much during the years of Occupation.  Since 1991, the company belongs to Pierre Frey.
