Georges Lalo is an employee of a printing and stamping workshop. As a young man full of ambition, he decided to move to Paris and set up his own luxury stationery and envelope factory. The company G. Lalo was born in 1920.
Today, the brand’s products are still made by hand in the same Parisian workshops. This genuine know-how, which is more than one hundred years old, enables us to offer correspondence enthusiasts high-quality items in pastel or bright colours. Among the papers manufactured by the brand are Vergé de France, Velin de France and Toile Impériale, all of which are of excellent quality.
G. Lalo became part of the Exacompta Clairefontaine group in 1990. To celebrate its centenary, the brand is partnering with Season Paper to release a collection in 2020 with a “Roaring Twenties” design. More sober in colour, this new line of stationery reveals Art Deco motifs giving it dynamism and lightness.
“Writing about G. Lalo is knowing how to please yourself, but above all how to please others, who will be very grateful.
The exciting history of the brand dates back to 1761. Caspar Faber, a carpenter by trade, began to make pencils and sell them on the market in Nuremberg, Germany. His son Anton Wilhelm converted the pencil workshop into a modern factory near Stein. This is still the company’s headquarters today. His son Georg Leonhard was responsible for the company’s continued existence in a difficult political and economic environment.
In 1839, Caspar’s great-grandson Lothar Faber, at the age of 22, contributed to the development of the company
