The collegiate church in Saint-Léonard-de-Noblat, a medieval city on the Saint-Jacques-de-Compostella Way, is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site of Humanity, and the traditional Carpenet family factory presents the entire traditional Limoges manufacturing and decoration process.
With several thousands of models spread over twenty or so collections, including the traditional cobalt blue, Carpenet designs new shapes every year: large oriental vases, other vases, boxes, lamps, tableware, wildlife, etc. It is able to respond quickly to its customers' needs, making personalised porcelain for special occasions (weddings, business gifts).
