EMPREINTES - Welcome to craftsmen

Enjoy the emotion of a sensitive object

Tableware, decoration, art of living, jewelry, fashion accessories, furniture, lamps, cabinet of curiosities and exceptional pieces: there are so many ways to beautify your daily life with a touch of emotion and to give it more soul and sensuality, putting textures and sensations back in the spotlight.

Meaningful values

It was high time to promote another temporality inviting to comprehend and tame singular handmade objects designed by craftsmen who master all the know-hows of a craft and thus trigger love-at-first-sight purchases.

Ateliers d’Art de France, the professional fine craft federation, chose this strong bias that led to the creation of EMPREINTES. An entire community is involved and works hard to present all the aspects of sensitive objects.

Contrary to standardized marketplaces, EMPREINTES is the place where all the aspects of the craftsmen’ know-hows and ability to transform materials are expressed freely and directly: ceramics, wood, paper, metal…

EMPREINTES: the name is crystal clear

EMPREINTES with an S is the reflection of the diversity of talents and fine craft craftsmen who leave their prints not only in their movements but also in their thought and expression, here and back to your home.
