About TheBottegaFagnola

Sales 6
On Etsy since 2009

It started as a challenge: is it possible to mix traditional technique with unusual material, quality and funciotnality with affordability?

During my classes at the Centro del Bel Libro in Ascona, Switzerlad I had the chance to learn many professional high quality bookbinding techniques and also have fun with traditional and unusual material.

During the first Fine Binding International Competition I entered (Biennale Mondiale de la Reliure d'Art, St. Rémy-lès-Chevreuses, France) I noticed that very high quality Binding were really expensive: was it really so impossible to find a way to have affordable products but good quality?

Mixing these two experiences toghether with a wish to challenge myself creating a brand on my own a trying to sell in a new way using modern technologies and social networks that Pauline Paulette was born.

    At 15 I said to my father: “Dad, in my life I want to be a bookbinder like you”. He answered: “Good, if you’ll be of the same idea 5 years from now we’ll discuss it" Over 10 years have passed and I still haven't changed my mind...
