Each piece is entirely hand-made by an artisan, from the start when the clay is thrown onto the wheel, to the end when the product is hand-painted and hand-glazed, making each piece completely unique.

In the heart of old Paris, in the 5th arrondissement, La Tuile à Loup has been a go-to source for the best of artisanal French craftsmanship for over 40 years. When the original owners were retiring in 2006, Eric Goujou was already a devoted customer.
A small “selling” sign on the shop’s door “Passion a transmettre” (passion to be passed on), proved to be a life-changing note for Eric, whose long time interest in interiors and the art of the handmade inspired him to take the plunge as a shopkeeper. Ten years have gone by and Eric has continued the legacy of made-in-France art Vivre at La Tuile a Loup, his mission being to preserve the crafts which might otherwise disappear.
