The Canson company stems from a family tradition spanning several centuries. Jean Montgolfier, taken prisoner during the crusades in Damascus, would have, in the 12th century, learned to make paper. After his escape, he would have brought the secret to Europe, would have settled in the production of paper, in order to replace parchment.
In 1557, while François de Guise armed a troop to take back the kingdom of Naples from the Spaniards, at a time when tensions reigned between Catholics and Protestants, Jacques Montgolfier, Ambert's stationer, left his native Auvergne to settle in Beaujolais.
This was the start of the geographical expansion of this family which, for several centuries, created a large number of paper mills.
CANSON papers are still made in France with a quality recognized by all artists around the world.
