Set in the Jura, the historical birthplace of wood-turning and toy-making, Vilac specialises in the production of traditional lacquered-wood toys.

The company offers a wide variety of designs in wood: its own creations, classic toys and board games, as well as toys created by artists. All of its production is still carried out in the workshop according to traditional methods; in spite of the large volumes of certain products, Vilac continues to make the toys by turning. The polishing, jabbing, lacquering, pad printing and assembly are all carried out by hand. Vilac’s particular expertise is in the lacquering of the toys by means of dip-coating, an uncommon Jura technique. Vilac toys are distributed exclusively through specialist retailers, department stores and designer stores. It has six stores in Japan and one in Paris. Boutique du Palais Royal : Jardin du Palais Royal, 9 Rue de Beaujolais, 75001 Paris
