1801

Birth of Canson et Montgolfier

 

Etienne de Montgolfier has been dead for two years. His son-in-law, Barthélemy Barou de la Lombardière de Canson takes over from him.

This is when the name Canson® first appears in the history of papermaking, a name which will become mythical for artists and lovers of beautiful papers.

 

With the founding of the Banque de France, purchases are now paid for in germinal francs.
