GAN is the indoor brand of GANDIABLASCO, and its starting point… In the late 80s, José Gandia-Blasco, president of the company, reinvented a family business that had been around for four decades. Faithful to the firm’s origins, José developed new lines of home textiles, betting big on design and incorporating the world of rugs to the offering. This is how the original GAN was born.
