Address 144 Rte de Vars 16160 Gond-Pontouvre, France

This former felt factory, made up of several buildings, now houses a company specializing in the manufacture of furniture.

The site was first exploited from 1840 by a flour mill. The owners construct buildings in place of two corn mills and two copper hammers. It was also here that a cannon drilling factory operated until 1810. In 1885, two spinners built several structures to create a felt factory. Prosperous, the company employed 409 people at the end of the 1980s. Despite everything, the factory closed. The buildings remained vacant for several years before being taken over by director Wes Anderson as part of the production of his film The French Dispatch in November 2018.
