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.

"Un passé spiritueux, un futur spirituel." Loosely translated, the title of this work by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac means "a spirited past, a spiritual future". A phrase both poetic and insightful that describes this work in primary colours, simple and figurative forms, with artistic influences taken directly from Pop Art and the New York art scene of the 1980s.

This work of art is reinterpreted in the workshops of Jules Pansu in the north of France using the jacquard technique that allows complex patterns to be woven that may include up to several thousand warp threads, allowing the faithful reproduction of the shapes and colours of the original. The impeccable execution of this tapestry is a tribute both to the artist himself and to the mastery of his weavers.

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.
