Henry Bertrand

Henry Bertrand was a weaver in Lyon in France in the mid-19th Century. He started one of the most successful weaving companies specialising in Silk sheers and Lyon nouveautes The creations can be seen in Museums around the world.

By the early 20th century, Henry Bertrand had four mills around Lyon and sales offices around Europe and America with the advent of man-made fabrics and the economic collapse of the late 1920s/early1930s the company went into decline and by 1963 all that was left was one mill and offices in Paris and London.

Apparently one of Henry Bertrand’s most succesful 1920s design – and now can be seen in the USA at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
