I started The Cartonnerie in 2003. I always wanted to do something creative, but I spent a long time searching for what kind of creativity, until I went to a box making workshop, also called 'French cartonnage'. Since then I have been designing and making boxes by hand. In my studio I design all designs myself. I love a challenge, so I like it when clients have their own ideas. These assignments are the most fun!
The base of my designs is greyboard sheets. I cut this board to size and then assemble it. I then line the design with linen or velvet and personalize it with foil press. In this way I can design everything myself and I’m not limited by a standard size. This means that every design is unique and original and completely handmade!
I work with FSC certified greyboard and paper, linen made from natural fibres, water based glue and I try to recycle as much waste and packages as possible. I also separate the paper waste. I feel it’s important to contribute to the environment in a positive way with my studio and not to overburden it. I also buy a lot of products from Dutch suppliers in order to support them.
I love to teach you my beautiful craft!
