Bourg La Reine, France
The story of Carrière Frères naturally follows that of the Royal Wax Manufacture, known today as Trudon. In 1884, the Carrière brothers decided to buy the manufacture: passionate about historical savoir-faire, they have in mind to modernize it. Respectful of traditions, they first embrace the century-old heritage of master candle makers established in the 17th and 18th centuries. Then, eager to innovate, they created Carrière Frères in 1884: Manufactured in the Trudon factory, the Carrière Frères line has since been at the crossroads when it comes to respecting ancient savoir-faire and draw inspiration from the 18th century’s many scientific endeavors and discoveries. They follow the works of botanists and explorers, the fate of far-flung expeditions; through them, they uncover unknown latitudes and rare plants.
