After marrying Marie-Jeanne Ainciart, daughter of Jean Ainciart, Jean Bergara joined the workshop. He learnt all the workshop’s skills and know-how, and perpetuated the tradition.
The wedding between Marie-Jeanne Ainciart and Jean Bergara in 1926 was a significant date because it was when the signature of makhilas made in the workshop changed.
Previoulsy signed “Ainciart”, our makhilas were now signed “Ainciart Bergara”. This name change did not have an impact on tradition of passing the trade on in the same workshop: one place, one family, one objet.
