Balsan - Combine heritage and innovation

For more than three centuries, Balsan has been a key player in textile design, specialising in a range of multi-formats solutions: broadloom (4m and 5m width), tiles (50×50cm) and planks (25×100cm). Originally known as the Manufacture Royale, the company was bought by Pierre Balsan in 1857, and the French company still maintains its sense of entrepreneurship and a desire to innovate. Louis Balsan's audacity led him to import the tuft technique to France - a technique that is still widely used today by manufacturers of textile fl oorings. In 2006, as part of its rapid expansion, Balsan joined the Belgian Belgotex International group.

Proud of its Berry origins, Balsan has two industrial sites located in the heart of a prestige natural environment near Châteauroux, which is perfectly preserved. A forerunner of sustainable development, the company takes its actions to preserve its natural environment very seriously: its commitment to producing zero landfi ll waste and partnership with the ONF, use of Econyl yarn, activated sludge water plant and waste recovery are all highlights.

With a surface area of 45,000m2, the Arthon manufacturing site is dedicated to the manufacture of wide width carpets, while the Neuvy- Saint-Sépulcre site specialises in the manufacture of planks and carpet tiles. This 100% 'made in France' manufacturing creates colourful carpets with a strong creative potential, for offi ce, hotel and home.

Balsan offers its skills in France and throughout the rest of the world. The company relies on the skills of its 250 employees and generates an annual turnover of nearly €70 million, 45% of which comes from exports.

Balsan's philosophy is to think of the fl oor as a true means of expression, while the DNA of the company lies in exploiting the creative potential of carpet through colours.The company is also committed to supporting young artists by setting up partnerships with French and International Design Schools (Dare Your Dreams) and by organising exhibitions for young designers (Marta Bakowski and Laureline Galliot).

Balsan currently markets a range of iconic collections - French Couture, Mix-Up and Macro Micro: Peak to Marble.

French Couture

Inspired by haute couture, Balsan offers a new collection of exceptional coating, dedicated to the hospitality and offi ce worlds. The noblest materials and the most sophisticated techniques are composed of these precious textile coatings. The tones harmonise with the walls and the reliefs create handstitched effects for a resolutely couture collection spirit.


Balsan has unveiled its own mix and match trend: 'Mix-Up', a new collection of modular carpets, serving creativity and personalisation. This collection mixes impressions and effects, and its colours invent new patterns. Mix-Up allows customers to create a graphic effect, an explosive shock or, more serenely, to enhance the shades. The goal is to express the unique personality of the place in order to best embody the client company's image, through an artistic exercise that transcends any creator.

Macro Micro: Peak to Marble

The Macro Micro concept is an inspiring style exercise that plays on three perspectives: Scope (top of the mountains), Vision (facing the purity of the marble) and Zoom (the heart of the material). Balsan is once again developing its Macro Micro concept by taking inspiration from the mineral world with its new Peak to Marble collection. Available in six mineral colours, with touches of vivid and subtle colours, Peak to Marble was designed to complement the company's Pilote tile collection. The Peak to Marble collection opens the fi eld of possibilities by playing on structures and design.
