Maison Myrbor was founded around 1910  in Algier by Marie Cuttoli (1879-1973), an important patron of the avant-garde. From 1923 she started editing modern rugs in collaboration with artists such as Jean Lurçat, Eileen Gray or Ivan Da Silva Bruhns. She went on to specialize in master rugs, woven after the works of Picasso, Léger, Arp or De Chirico. In 1933 Marie Cuttoli manufactured the first tapestries based on cartoons by the master of Surrealism, Joan Miro.
