Located in the capital of stained glass at Chartres, are workshops belonging to a family of 3 generations, whose work can be found on all continents...
Founded in 1946 by Gabriel Loire (1904-1996) in order to create his own windows and mosaics. The workshops are now run by Jacques, Hervé and Bruno (Gabriel’s son and grandsons). They perpetuate creativity and technical research whilst maintaining their know-how for traditional stained glass windows and panels. With a dozen dedicated staff, the workshops are able to produce some very sizeable works both in France and overseas.
