From humble beginnings to becoming an iconic kitchen staple, the Le Creuset Volcanic collection is as beautiful now as it was when it first began.
In 1924, a cast-iron specialist called Armand Desaegher and an enamel specialist named Octave Aubecq teamed up together after meeting at The Brussels Fair to create their first product, the famous Cast Iron Pot and the birth of Le Creuset began. In 1925, Aubecq and Desaegher started production in Fresnoy le Grand, France, which is where manufacturing remains to this day almost a hundred years later.
If you’re looking for a quality item that will last generations, then look no further than Le Creuset. Le Creuset foundry uses standard sand-casting methods and after each product is finished by hand, items are sprayed with at least two coats of enamel which makes the enamel resistant to damage during normal use.
This trend-setting, distinctive colour was inspired by the fiery orange of molten iron. The inspiration comes from the “unparalleled spectacle of molten cast iron being poured from a crucible. The signature ombre gradation came about because as that iron cools when it’s being poured it goes from this bright hot orange to a darker orange.” This famous colour went on to become synonymous with the brand.
This gorgeous, rich colour is the heart and soul of Le Creuset and these attractive dishes are as sought after today as they were when they once graced the foundry moulds all those years ago.
