EMPREINTE: Your Paris Map, a Grasp on History
In Paris, every street corner is steeped in history, every building tells a unique story, and each district has its own charm. For lovers of the City of Light, it's nearly impossible not to fall under the spell of its exceptional architectural treasures, art, and culture.
It's in this spirit that we've created EMPREINTE, an exceptional decorative object that allows you to possess an authentic piece of Paris, neighborhood by neighborhood. The essence of this extraordinary city is captured in every fragment of recycled zinc that we've carefully transformed into a unique work of art.
An Original Gift, a Piece of Paris by District
Each EMPREINTE is an artistic representation of the map of the Paris it symbolizes, a true piece of Parisian history that you can give or keep for yourself. By holding a piece of Parisian roof that is over half a century old, you possess a precious link to the city's soul.
A Piece of Parisian History
Each EMPREINTE is the result of meticulous transformation of a piece of Parisian zinc roof, recycled and handcrafted. All our creations are Made in France, with special attention 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 construction works in Paris and decided to use zinc for its rooftops. Today, 70% of Parisian rooftops are made of zinc.
A Mother-Daughter Duo Behind the Idea
Behind each EMPREINTE is a mother-daughter duo passionate about art, history, and the beauty of Paris. Their personal commitment adds a warm and authentic touch to each piece, creating an emotional connection.
Original Creation, Timeless and Elegant Design
Each EMPREINTE is imbued with the timeless charm of Paris. We have screen-printed a map where each inner Paris district is represented. Not to mention the geographical coordinates of the original roof fragment, to help you discover its origin. Finally, the folding is an illumination of the Parisian skyline, paying homage to the traditional technique of "la couverture à tasseau" unique to Parisian rooftops. It's more than a decorative object; it's a work of art, a true imprint of the city.
Eco-Friendly and Artisanal
Our approach is resolutely eco-friendly, embodying our commitment to the environment by recycling Parisian rooftops to create these unique objects while preserving the city's authenticity.
Customization with Laser Engraving:
To make your EMPREINTE even more special, we offer you the possibility of personalizing your creation. You can add initials, a short message, or even a location point at the address of your choice in the district that matters to you.
Let your creativity run wild to make your EMPREINTE truly unique.
