PILLIVUYT - A NAME WITH A HISTORY
http://www.pillivuytus.com
Located in the heart of central France, Pillivuyt Porcelain (say "Pilly-vwheat") continues its long tradition of excellence. Pillivuyt has been making beautiful quality porcelain since 1818. Today, Pillivuyt's traditional and contemporary designs are made with the same meticulous finish, pureness and multi-functional qualities that have made Pillivuyt the favorite of great cooks all over the world. Charles Pillivuyt of Switzerland founded the company in 1816 in the Berry region in the center of France. The Berry region is located 200 km south of Paris in one of two areas renowned for producing French porcelain (Limoges and le Berry). This part of the country is well known for Sancerre wine, beautiful housing and the imposing cathedral in the center of Bourges.

Initially, Pillivuyt produced fine, heavily adorned dinnerware for famous customers such as the Royal Courts of Holland and Egypt. However, in 1880, with the development of cafes and restaurants, the Company started to focus on the catering market to become one the most important producers in France and the European leader in cookware. In 1918, as lifestyles began to change, Pillivuyt took a bold new step and formulated the tough, elegant oven to table porcelain that we know today.

Pillivuyt & Hollywood
Pillivuyt culinary porcelain can be seen in Sony Picture’s upcoming production of “Julie and Julia”, a 2008 fall-release movie starring Meryl Streep as Julia Child and Amy Adams as Julie, a New York woman who decided to cook every recipe in “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” over the course of a year. The “Julia” project received considerable media attention and resulted in a book “Julie and Julia – My Year of Cooking Dangerously”. By request of the staff of Sony pictures, Pillivuyt stars as itself, gracing Julie’s table and kitchen with class Brasserie bowls, Plisse dinnerware, and traditional soufflés and tart dishes. Sony’s request to put Pillivuyt in their movie was a carefully researched nod to the classic and authentic nature of Pillivuyt porcelain which would have been part of the landscape of the culinary market in Paris during Julia’s tenure there.

Pillivuyt Innovates
In 2007 Pillivuyt in collaboration with Patrick Moulin the created the first range of luxury jewelry in porcelain. (http://www.patrick-moulin.fr/). Pillivuyt’s collaboration with Patrick Moulin for The Women’s International Film & Television Showcase will mark another first in the creation and manufacture of TheWIFTS award, perpetuating its ongoing relationship with the film and television industry.
