The National School of Decorative Arts in Paris has its roots in the Royal Free School of Art (École royale gratuite de dessin) founded in 1766 by Jean-Jacques Bachelier. Its founder's aim was to develop crafts relating to the arts in order to improve the quality of manufactured goods. In 1877 the name was changed to École nationale des arts décoratifs and later École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs. The school currently operates in Paris and teaches a curriculum that covers a spectrum of fields relating to the Decorative Arts.
