France - France Cartes

FRANCE CARTES is the official name of the only major producer of playing cards left in France. (Heron and Vigno have now both been fully absorbed within France Cartes.) They still use the trade or brand name 'Grimaud' on some of their products since the name has been so closely associated with playing cards in France since the 19th century.
