The "Cheval de Toi" cushion was made from an extract of a painting by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac entitled "Un passé Spiritueux, un Futur Spiritueul".
Jean-Charles de Castelbajac is a visionary artist and fashion designer who rewrote the industry's traditional codes in the 1970s, creating new fashion trends, such as the "anti-fashion" movement, based on the appropriation and alternative use of everyday objects. He introduced the concept of partnerships with famous brands, such as Coca-Cola and Swatch, and befriended and worked with some of the most illustrious names in art and pop music, such as Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Madonna and Lady Gaga.
For four generations, the family firm founded in 1878 by Jules Pansu has carried on the centuries-old tradition of Gobelins and Aubusson tapestries. Pioneers in the use of Joseph Marie Jacquard's mechanical loom, they demonstrate enviable continuity, reinventing and adapting over time.
Since 2012, the Jules Pansu workshops have been considered "Living Heritage" by the French State, a mark of recognition that distinguishes French companies with craft know-how and industrial excellence.
All Jules Pansu cushions are entirely woven and manufactured in the Les Tissages de la Lys workshops located in Northern France. Made in jacquard weave, they are rich in relief and texture.
