VILAC is the French toy manufacturer, the reference that we no longer need to present, for over a century.

Established in the Jura since 1911, in Moirans-en-Montagne, since Narcisse Villet started his turning workshop, the company became Vilac in 1979 by contraction of Villet and lacquer, which gives colour to toys. As the years went by, the tradition was perpetuated and the company gradually established itself on the national and then international wooden toy scene.

The company has developed since then, while preserving the tradition and local know-how in turned and lacquered wood toys. Beech, hornbeam, alder or boxwood, the surrounding forests guarantee the speciality and quality of the factory.

Since the 1990s, Vilac has been collecting awards: Grand Prix for the Babar toy in 1989, Grand Prix for the Design of the wood industries in 1992, Grand Prix for the Toy industry for TOBY the dog in 1996. Vilac, which was awarded the "Living Heritage Company" label in 2007 and the "Savoir-Faire" label of the Haut-Jura Regional Natural Park, was once again awarded a prize when Léon the kitten was chosen to become the mascot of the French Pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo.

A thorough work of lines that favors archetypal and geometric forms, pure volumes and primary and complementary colors, make Vilac toys a decorative object, anchored in the collective memory.

Within the French toy industry, Vilac is an exception. The company has proven its ability to adapt by cultivating a love of beauty. Turned, smoothed, sanded, lacquered, decorated, stylized and embellished by craftsmen, designers or artists,wood is a wonderful medium for dreams!
