Jules Badin was the son of the painter Pierre-Adolphe Badin (1805-1876). He was educated by Alexandre Cabanel and Paul Baudry. He married Marguerite Diéterle (1853-1940) and they had at least six children.

He is best known for being the owner and director of the manufactory of gobelins in Beauvais, where he succeeded his father. During the war of 1870-1871 many tapestries were lost in fires and state patronage ended, but after the war demand increased when Paris was rebuilt.

As a painter he is mostly remembered for his history paintings and his portraits.
