History of Maison Goyard
Maison Goyard has been the flagbearer of a heritage of excellence. A Parisian brand dating back to Pierre-François Martin’s Maison Martin in 1792 as the brand behind the heritage, it specialised in box-making, trunk-making, and was way ahead of his time. Martin left a mark in the dainty art of garment folding and packing, rather than the container itself.
François Goyard was later hired in 1845 as an apprentice, who was trained at the exceptional hands of Martin himself. It was in 1852 when Goyard took over and changed the name of the brand to Maison Goyard.
