2020 marks the anniversaries of two iconic brands; The First Centenary of G. Lalo® and 350 successful years of Herbin®.
As the UK supplier of these ranges, ExaClair Limited will be highlighting these historic milestones with a display of commemorative limited edition items.
Originally a manufacturer of sealing wax, The Herbin® brand was established by a Mr. Jacques Herbin in Paris during 1670. It is from his travels in India that the founder imported his formula of shellac which allowed him to advance the quality of his seals, in adherence and finesse, and to acquire a professional reputation internationally. In 1798, the company went on to create a line of writing inks.
Herbin® have released a selection of 350th anniversary gift sets, which incorporate vintage wax capped ink bottles, available in the first five colours launched by Herbin®; black, blue, red, green and violet.
Lalo® was also founded in Paris, by Mr Georges Lalo, who had worked within a printing and stamping workshop before fulfilling his dream of starting his own company to supply luxury letters and envelopes. Thanks to its craftsmanship and superior quality, it remains as the French reference in social stationery.
To mark their centenary celebrations, a collaboration between G. Lalo® and Season Paper; a French and Parisian brand, has resulted in a new collection of notepads, notebooks and compendium sets which feature three attractive, Art Deco inspired patterns.
