The Silpat™ story began in 1965 when Monsieur Guy Demarle, an experienced French baker, set out to develop a better way to prepare and bake baguettes. His invention, a new baking mat, began a revolution in professional baking. Every Silpat™ mat and mould proudly bears the "Made in France" stamp as your guarantee of quality and a lasting tribute to the French baker who began the revolution.
