THE BIANCHINI FERIER ARCHIVE
The silk weaving house of Bianchini Firier was founded in Lyon in 1888. In 1912 the artist Raoul Dufy (1877-1953) signed a contract with them and went on to produce about 4000 designs for Bianchini Firier between 1912 and 1928. After his contract came to an end Bianchini Firier continued to make fabrics for important fashion houses such as Worth, Madeleine Vionnet, Jeanne Lanvin Paquin and Patou. They produced scarves for Hermes, Jacques Fath and others and created imaginative designs for Givenchy, Balenciaga, Chanel, Dior and Yves Saint-Laurent, to name but a few.
