The Toit de Paris Keychain embodies an authentic piece of the City of Light, perfect for gifting or keeping as a memento of Paris, elegantly presented in its gift box.
Crafted from genuine materials sourced from recycled Parisian rooftops, each piece is the result of meticulous French artisanal design. We've chosen to elevate these unique items by screen-printing an iconic image of Paris: the majestic Notre Dame Cathedral overlooking the city's rooftops.
It represents over 800 years of history, honoring the craftsmanship of roofers and more than eight centuries of heritage.
We've decided to pay tribute to Notre Dame on our Parisian rooftops, celebrating the skill and dedication of the roofers who tirelessly work on the restoration of Notre Dame Cathedral's roof. This is why we've chosen to illustrate and highlight it in our creations.
The Porte-Clé Toit de Paris is more than just an accessory; it's infused with the history and soul of the City of Light. Having endured over half a century on Parisian rooftops, each piece possesses its own unique character, influenced by its individual aging process. You'll discover a range of shades, from deep grays to lighter grays, and a texture that can be granular or smooth.
The marks from its time on the rooftops, such as scratches and stains, serve as genuine witnesses to its history. Indeed, zinc on Parisian rooftops ages uniquely, influenced by various factors like exposure, ventilation, and the quality of the material. Consequently, each keychain is a one-of-a-kind piece.
The Porte-Clé Toit de Paris embodies the true spirit of the City of Light, offering your loved ones an authentic gift steeped in history. Its proportions, adhering to the famous golden ratio, endow it with undeniable aesthetic harmony that is sure to delight.
Whether to pleasantly surprise your loved ones with an original gift or to indulge yourself, this keychain is more than just an accessory; it's a good luck charm that will accompany you everywhere. It pairs seamlessly with your keys, but it can also adorn your wallet, handbag, backpack, pencil case, and many other items.
And if you wish to personalize your Porte-Clé Toit de Paris, simply let us know the initials or a short message of your choice when placing your order.
In closing, here's an interesting tidbit: In the mid-19th century, during the major renovations initiated by Haussmann in Paris, zinc became the favored material for rooftops, which allowed for increased living space in buildings. Today, over 70% of the city's rooftops are made of zinc, contributing to Paris's unique identity.
For all those who admire Paris, this exclusive creation evokes the everlasting magic of the City of Light, offering the chance to keep a piece of its charm within reach.
