Cotton
A Combed cotton takes the
carded process to a higher
level and softens the cotton
fibers more, for an even
softer feel.
A Carded cotton is cotton
which has been prepared for
spinning into thread or yarn.
Carding is an important process
ensuring that debris is removed
while aligning the fibers to
make them easier to spin.

Garnier-Thiebaut: A Story of Passion
The history of Garnier-Thiebaut is not just a chronology, but a story of passion. This chronicle is about the men and women who
have succeeded through the ages to give Garnier-Thiebaut the foundation required to make it a worldwide leader in luxury linens.
Like many good stories, it begins with a marriage celebrated in the house of cloth merchants;
Virginia Thiebaut and Jean-Baptiste Garnier. In the early nineteenth century, the Vosges region
of France was already known for its cloth which had an exceptional finishing due to the optimal acidity of the water streams feeding the lake Gerardmer. But this recognition did not mean
that the newlyweds were content. In 1833, when the wedding was fairly new, the miracle of
importance and employed their knowledge to use this new
form of energy for improving their new home.

Arrival of power looms gave birth to the story of the pioneers of the manufacturing era. The first
textile factory Garnier-Thiebaut Brothers was constructed at Kirchompré in 1870. The company
soon prospered and became the largest regional company. Local life blossomed around it with
the construction of a nursery, school and a church. As recognition, the company was given
several awards at various European expositions.
Life at Garnier-Thiebaut continued to prosper until the end of the second War World. In 1944, Gerardmer

With arrival of 1970s, the economic crisis that affected the entire industry and the society at large did not spare the world of
textiles. Despite their reputation and expertise, times were hard for Garnier-Thiebaut, especially as the crisis penetrated deeper
and longer than anticipated. Ownership of Garnier-Thiebaut changed several times but still the company failed to overcome its

financial difficulties. Finally, in 1985, the company was acquired by the oldest textile family of France; the Montclos together with
the Central Linière, the textile specialist for hotels and restaurants.

nine years, the anticipated upturn did not take place and the company remained mired in persistent
financial difficulties. As if the national economic situation was not enough, the final nail was driven in
Garnier-Thiebaut’s already terrible weakened economic situation by a textile tycoon who bought all

launderers of Paris. Garnier-Thiebaut lost 30% of its inventory.
Faced with adversity, Montclos did not intend to give up. In 1995 Garnier-Thiebaut, far ahead of the
existing trends, launched the coated fabric, which proved to be an unprecedented success. The
company therefore was able to survive somehow with the Centrale Linière, until the merger of the
two companies into a single entity ‘La Société de Tissage de Gérardmer’, The Weaving Society of
Gerardmer) in 1995.
That same year, Paul de Montclos became the CEO of Garnier-Thiebaut France. In 1997 they started
exporting to US market; in 1999 Garnier-Thiebaut Inc. was established and in April 2010 GarnierThiebaut Inc. acquired Hilden America Inc. taking the Garnier-Thiebaut story to a new level.
