The history of the Zuber & Cie factory is very similar to the history of wallpaper in Europe.
Based in Rixheim (Alsace, France) since 1797, in a former commandry of the Teutonic Knights, Zuber is still printing wallpaper to this day. This makes it the oldest surviving wallpaper manufacturer in the world.
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 the archive is its scale, especially for documents dating back to the first half of the 19th century.
Zuber also produces fabric, leather and paint.
