In 1927 the PETIT family entered into the history of Pastels Girault® by buying the brand and the production methods.
George Henri PETIT and his wife worked in the workshops in Montreuil, in the suburbs of Paris.
His son, Albert, and then his grandson Christian, successively integrated and took over the business.
In 1998, quite understandably, Christian PETIT decided to move closer to the origins of the art and moved to the Dordogne
Dordogne just 8km from the famous grotte de LASCAUX.
In January 2016 Christian PETIT handed the reigns over to his niece Karine LOISEAU, who now works alongside him with her husband.
