Founded in 1780
For more than 200 years Pastels Girault craftsmen have been handing down their skills in the manufacture of a single product: the pastel. Founded in the 18th century, this cottage industry is now preparing its entry into the 21st century.

At the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, Pastel Girault was rewarded with several prizes in various exhibitions in Paris for its qualities which are acknowledged throughout the world.
