Between tradition and innovation

Each member of Paelis aims to ensure the transmission and application of the traditional techniques of straw marquetry.

Under the leadership of Manon Bouvier, the team also attaches paramount importance to thinking about tomorrow’s marquetry throughout research, development and innovation. It means thinking about other application techniques for the straw, inventing new motifs, creating innovative surfaces and using other materials.

Our team at your service

The team is constantly listening to your ideas and questions during the conception and production of your project.

All of our savoir-faire is dedicated to the realization of your projects such as the mulching of furniture, wall panels or even smaller objects such as cigar cellars, frames or mirrors.

Research and development

This is a real point of honor for the workshop. We are constantly seeking new ways of working the material in order to give a new dimension to the discipline.

Paelis wants to imagine tomorrow's application of straw marquetry and therefore, constantly thinks about new ways to adapt the savoir-faire: the creation of new patterns, the association of straw with innovative supports, the use of more up-to-date colors, the improvement of mulching techniques or the search for new uses for straw.
