Bernardaud is a registered « Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant » (Live Heritage Business), with two production sites in Limousin (Limoges and Oradour- sur-Glane). There are eight Bernardaud shops worldwide. Bernardaud is France's largest dinner porcelain maker/exporter. In the Limoges factory, which dates back to the brand's origins in 1863, a tour presents the different steps involved in porcelain-making, from the raw matter to the finished product. A guide shows visitors the techniques and creative gestures required, in quite an original manner: this is not an ordinary museum: guests are directly involved since they are invited to touch different objects and tools. Once the tour is finished, there are permanent and temporary exhibitions to enjoy, such as the presentation of dinner services used on the world's finest tables.
Be sure to visit the factory outlet and discover its large choice of table services as well as gifts, not to mention the prestigious boutique with the most recent contemporary pieces.
