A long time ago in the city of Coruña in Spain, there lived a family of master glassmakers. Their knowledge was transmitted from generation to generation.
It was in the 1960's under the guiding influence of their father and grandfather that two young brothers, Alphonse and Tomas, learned the techniques and secrets of the art of glassblowing.
The Spanish government, looking for young artists, appointed them to go and promote their art and their country at the 1964 New York World's Fair.
It was on this occasion that the Arribas brothers had their first meeting with Mr. Walt Disney, which changed their lives.
The affiliation between the Arribas brothers and Disney began in 1967 with the opening of their first store and studio at Disneyland in California.
Since then, the Arribas family has continued to expand its expertise in the art of glass to offer increasingly spectacular demonstrations, from glass blowing with a cane and flashlight, to crystal and glass cutting.
Arribas France was created in October 1991, in view of the opening of Disneyland Paris.
Today, Arribas France works in the greatest secrecy in its factory to create glass collection objects to be discovered.
So, come and admire our new generation of Arribas glassblowers practicing this rare and demanding profession.
