BF Tecidos e Papéis de Parede takes pride in representing brands whose production focuses on "luxury craftsmanship" and feature a unique process of artistic creativity.
Marcel Boussac has remained a legend through his intuitive and creative genius. He revolutionized french fabrics in 1933 by creating his own brand: a demanding technique with new patterns for a younger clientele.
He met with the success and recognition that remains to this day: the technical qualities of the fabrics offer resistance to wear, light, fire, etc.
Various plain fabrics, geometrical designs, and large vegetable motifs in a variety of colors expand to the brand's wallpapers. Its public is the general public, as well as certain leading hotel and industrial groups. Its fabrics are also used by seating and luggage manufacturers.
"This is a Braquenié," say the experts. A short sentence that says a lot about the prestige of this name. This historic house, founded in 1824, embodies the very spirit of French classicism.
Braquenié, known for its Indian fabrics, cottons, toiles de Jouy, carpets and one-of-a-kind mats with hand-knotted strands, has always been wherever 'art de vivre' reigns: the Louvre, Chambord, the Vatican, all the courts of Europe under Napoléon III, Victor Hugo's home... and today as well in many charming hotels and plush private residences.
Founded in 1976 by Nicola Fabrizio and his wife Elda, to this day Dedar remains a family passion.

This Italian jewel, born in 1947, looks out from a Florentine palace, from opera dressing rooms, or from the stage of a theatre. Fadini Borghi is to silk what Braquenié is to cottons.
