This stationery was created by the Parisian Company G. Lalo and is made in France. A Parisian social stationery manufacturer since 1920, G. Lalo provides the royal courts of Sweden, Holland, Belgium and Monaco with handcrafted stationery.
Two aspects of G. Lalo stationery contribute to its renown: the quality of its papers and the elegance of its presentation.
G. Lalo is also famous for the colors of its papers. There are classic colors such as ivory, white, blue and champagne; and vibrant hues of rose, lavender, lagoon, taupe and melon.
The hand gilded stationery is still prepared one sheet or card at a time. Each motif is stamped in gold by hand.
One thing remains timeless: the gift of your thoughts on paper will always be cherished.
You will receive one box of Sun King cards and Envelopes. The props, pens and inks in the photos are not included, but can be purchased elsewhere in our shop.
