How the adventure started
It all started in 1911 in Moirans-en-Montagne which is a village known for making wooden toys. Narcisse Villet started a wooden workshop called ''Maison Villet'' and in 1951 his sons took over the workshop and created ''Villet Freres''. In 1979, the workshop instead became Vilac which is a combination of the words Villet and Lacquer, which are used in the toys.
In 1985, Vilac was bought by Hervé Halgand, who continued the tradition of the painted wooden toys. In 2001, Vilac was awarded the Living Heritage Company (EPV) label thanks to the unique and traditional toys. In 2012, Vilac was bought by France Cartes Group.
