Founded in 1996, Astier de Villatte has many facets:
An artisanal ceramic workshop in Paris, the sole of its kind, which employs and modernizes 18th-centry French manufacturing traditions and brings new life to the art of stamping.
A printing press in the suburbs of Paris, the last in France (and one of the last in the world) to use lead typesetting.
A publishing house, whose first publications include the atypical travel guide Ma Vie à Paris; Drawings, an art book by the multitalented artist Lou Doillon; and now a new edition of Mitsou by Balthus.
A perfume atelier where, in collaboration with the best noses, perfumes, colognes, cosmetics, incense and erasers are invented, together with a whole collection of scented candles around the theme of an olfactory world tour.
Two Parisian boutiques, on Rue Saint-Honoré and Rue de Tournon, showcasing all the house’s creations, including titanium cutlery, borosilicate glasses, cube-motif notebooks created on a typographic press, as well as a dizzying selection of Christmas ornaments from around the world.
