Co-founders and artistic directors of A Paris chez Antoinette Poisson, Vincent Farelly and Jean-Baptiste Martin are both heritage restorers specialising in wallpaper who met on restoration sites in Paris and decided to create Antoinette Poisson in 2012. Since then, they have been reviving the savoir-faire of domino paper by creating Antoinette Poisson. Following in the tradition of 18th century techniques, the Paris-based atelier of Antoinette Poisson designs and creates domino papers by hand that are single works of art.
The paper is handmade in Jacques Bréjoux's mill, one of the last old-style paper mills (which has earned it international fame). A paper similar to rag paper that was found in the 17th and 18th centuries.
The patterns, printing, painting are handmade in their Parisian workshop, with all the patience and precision that it requires. Antoinette Poisson domino papers are unique and rare pieces.
