L'Ecritoire Paris, papeterie parisienne depuis 1975, crée par Sophie.

L'Ecritoire, original and independent stationery shop since 1975.

In 1975, fresh out of school and fingers still stained with ink, Sofie created L'Ecritoire - the Parisian stationery store.

Keeping it in the family, she was following in her grandfather’s footsteps André Tardy, a manufacturer and marketer of glass and porcelain school buckets. He was also the inventor of the "Optimus" 4-colour pen or the bucket flapper allowing the ink not to dry.

42 years later, L'Ecritoire is rich in memories. With its counter always a little ink-stained, L'Ecritoire offers visitors with a passion for writing an endearing universe that comes from traditional heritage, timeless craftsmanship and original and independent creations.

Stationery shop specializing in the pleasure of writing and the art of paper.

L'Ecritoire offers a selection of high quality papers and a large collection of fountain pens, writing and calligraphy instruments, colourful and metallic inks, inkwells, notebooks, albums, beautiful letterheads, envelopes of all shapes and colours, a multitude of cards, wax seals, natural multicolored sealing wax, and other creative objects.

L'Ecritoire has always been selecting original and quality products, made with care and in small series.

L'Ecritoire makes a point of honouring to promoting French craftsmanship at its finest, for example French Living Heritage or Ateliers d'Art.

L'Ecritoire also offers stationery made outside of France, but always with the respect for man and his environment.
