We are proud to include in our gift box collections, products by Clairefontaine. So, we want to share part of their story with you. It is a story written on the finest paper…
Situated near the Vosge mountains in the Etival region of France, Clairefontaine was originally established in 1858 as a paper mill.
For more than 100 years Clairefontaine has been renowned for making the best writing paper in the world. Clairefontaine produces its own paper to ensure its legendary quality. The famous "brushed vellum 90 gsm" paper is highly resistant and opaque, thus preventing the ink from "bleeding", this allows the use of both sides of the paper whether you are using a fountain pen or a pencil. It's superb!
They are the only stationer in Europe that produces its own paper for the manufacture of its stationary items. They thus have better control over manufacturing processes, environmental impact and quality produced.
The company has been presented with the prized "Water Trophy" from the French Department of the Environment for its exemplary use of water and its respect for this vital resource. It uses only paper pulp coming from 100% certified forests with an environmental management and has PEFC and FSC chain of custody certification for all production sites using virgin fibres.
It is great to be contributing to the environment in a meaningful way by including such gorgeous quality products in our collections which are for your ultimate enjoyment.
We have specifically included Clairefonteine stationary in our ‘Take Note’ and 'The Academic' Gift Box Collections. A superb and thoughtful way to express thanks to friends, and a great idea as a corporate gift.
