The Revol story began in Saint-Uze, in the heart of France’s Rhone Valley, in 1789. In a region of France known for its red sandstone, brothers Joseph-Marie and Francois Revel started to manufacture a much harder-wearing white stoneware from local mineral deposits. A few years later, the Revol factory developed a non-porous formula that could be enameled in various colors; this went on to become the benchmark of fine porcelain. Since then, the Revol name has been closely linked with porcelain production. By remaining a family-owned company for 11 generations, Revol has preserved and reinforced its values and originality, while constantly advancing the art of porcelain.
