EMPREINTE: Your map of Boulogne-Billancourt, a hold on its past


In Boulogne-Billancourt, every nook and cranny resonates with history, every building tells a singular story, and every neighborhood reveals its own unique charm. For admirers of the city, succumbing to the charm of its architectural treasures, its exceptional art and culture becomes inevitable.


With this in mind, we've created EMPREINTE, an exceptional decorative piece that offers you the chance to own an authentic piece of Boulogne-Billancourt. The essence of this exceptional city is captured in each fragment of recycled zinc that we have meticulously transformed into a unique piece of art.


An Original Gift, a Fragment of Boulogne-Billancourt by Neighborhood

Each EMPREINTE is an artistic representation of the plan of Boulogne-Billancourt it symbolizes, an authentic piece of local history that you can give as a gift or keep for yourself. By preserving a fragment of roofing more than half a century old, you are forging a precious link with the soul of the city.


A piece of Boulogne-Billancourt history

Each EMPREINTE is the result of a meticulous transformation of a fragment of Boulogne-Billancourt's zinc roof, recycled and reworked by hand. All our creations are Made in France, with particular attention paid to every detail. Each fragment is unique, reflecting its exposure, ventilation and zinc quality, leaving subtle marks that tell its story.


Did you know?

In the mid-19th century, Haussmann initiated major works in Paris, and the use of zinc for roofing became common practice. Today, much of the roofing in Boulogne-Billancourt, as in Paris, is made of zinc.


A Mother-Daughter Duo at the Origin of the Idea 

Behind every EMPREINTE is a mother-daughter duo with a passion for the art, history and beauty of Boulogne-Billancourt. Their personal commitment adds a warm, authentic touch to each piece, creating an emotional bond.


Original creation, timeless and elegant design 

Each EMPREINTE is imbued with the timeless charm of Boulogne-Billancourt. We have silk-screened a map depicting every district of Boulogne-Billancourt. Not forgetting the geographical coordinates of the original roof fragment, to help you discover its provenance. Finally, the folding highlights the urban landscape, paying homage to the traditional roofing technique so characteristic of Boulogne's roofs. It's much more than a decorative object, it's a work of art, a true imprint of the city.

 Eco-responsible and artisanal

Our approach is resolutely eco-responsible, embodying our commitment to the environment by recycling the roofs of Boulogne-Billancourt to create these unique objects, while preserving the city's authenticity.


Laser-engraved personalization 

To make your EMPREINTE even more special, we offer you the option of personalizing your creation. You can add initials, a short message, or even a location dot at the address of your choice, in the neighborhood that's closest to your heart. Give free rein to your creativity to make your EMPREINTE truly unique.
