Lit: In the 18th century when porcelain production began in France, the reputation of Limoges porcelain spread quickly.  Soon the mere mention of the name of the city would instantly bring to mind the art of porcelain making. One reason of the principal reasons for the notoriety of Limoges porcelain was kaolin. This white clay, essential to the production of hard-paste porcelain, was discovered in the Limousin region in 1768.
