The King of Cotton, Marcel Boussac

Internationally known as The King of Cotton in the 1930’s, Marcel Boussac started his company with a vision. His vision was to produce unique, high-quality fabrics with innovative designers and bring these French designs to an international marketplace. As we all know, his vision built an empire, and this King of Cotton’s company, now a brand of Pierre Frey, continues to produce beautiful quality pieces bringing color and life into any room.
