The company GANDIA BLASCO was born in Ontinyent (Valencia) in 1941. It started with the production and manufacture of blankets, an activity that continued for 40 years with considerable success. With the arrival of José A. Gandía-Blasco to the company, the activity began to diversify. In the early 1990s, the company started with the production of other textile products, such as carpets and bedspreads. With the help of Marisa Gallén and Sandra Figuerola, designers, the image of the make was reshaped and the first products with a strong design component were launched.
