With a combination of know-how and creativity, Rairies Montrieux keeps the flame alive
Les Rairies terracotta: a timeless yet evolving material
Situated on the strategic Loire Valley route, the village of Les Rairies is one of the oldest terracotta production sites in France. While the village had no fewer than 61 brickmakers and potteries in 1867, Rairies Montrieux is today one of the last producers operating at a national level to make use of clay mined from the open-cast quarries of Anjou.
As a worthy heir to the traditions of terracotta, Rairies Montrieux has founded its professionalism and creativity on facing-brick know-how stretching back more than seven generations. Real dedication and 100% French sourcing are backed by genuine expertise in the provision of advice, support and future-proof solutions in addition to industrial proficiency.
A benchmark for terracotta facade cladding and bricks
Renowned for its many different products, including terracotta tomettes, wall tiles and external landscaping products, Rairies Montrieux extended its expertise some years ago to include the field of facades. As seen in its Paris showroom, the company offers the most comprehensive range of cladding solutions using bricks, brick slips and small bricks, whether it be for architectural options (e.g. textures, shapes, formats, colours and finishes) or fitting systems (e.g. bonded elements, weatherboarding and slot-in cladding).
