    • The Daban family have been making cowbells for around 330 years, the ancestor of the family being born in 1639. Maison Daban was founded in 1795 in Nay by Jean-Bernard Daban. Two hundred and twenty years later, his grandson in the sixth generation, became the only authentic manufacturer of cowbells from Collioure to Hendaye.

      This production is done essentially from iron plates which are shaped by hand, then brazed in the oven with brass by wrapping them in a sheet of clay. These oven bells are then tuned by hand to nourish the symphony of the mountains.

      The purpose of the cowbell is not to decorate the animals, but to locate the place where they are, to prevent the too great dispersion of the cattle, to locate the hunting dogs and to keep the vipers away.

      Finally, the bells can be decorative objects or holiday souvenirs.
