One day, my friend Valerie visited me with a big folder. Sketchbook? Big comic book? I was surprised to discover some paper placemats from Alexandre Turpault brand.
Sketchbook of 28 paper placemats with 4 different patterns, size 42*29.7cm. Smalls birds outside their cages and leaf on a green, grey, blue or pink background, in recycled paper and vegetal inks.
The motifs are finely drawn. You can use it for family lunch and allow the childrens to draw on some new birds but I prefer to use them for french « chic diners ». I don’t know if everybody could appreciate fashionable paper placemats made in the North of France, but I’m définitively won over by the idea. And it’s very trendy. The Dutch company Pepin Press offers a range of paper placemats with artistic designs (1970’s, Art déco, India, William Morris, Modernism, Japanese patterns…).
