The history of the Zuber & Cie factory is quite similar to the history of wallpaper in Europe.
Based in Rixheim (Alsace, France) since 1797 in a former commandry of the Teutonic Knights, the Zuber factory still prints wallpapers, fabric and leather using the traditional woodblock-printing technique.
This makes it the last factory in the world to use this 18th century technique for its production.
The factory has kept documents in its archive since the beginning (more than 130000 documents) as well as all the manufacturing tools (150000 woodblocks, carved by its workers between 1797 and 1870). The main strength of these archives is their scale, especially during the first half of the 19th century.
Zuber also produces fabric, leather and paint.
