The production of paper is a long running tradition for the valley of the Meurthe, with the creation of the first paper mill dating back to the 16th century. It is in this environment that Papeteries de Clairefontaine started their production in 1858, in the town of Etival Clairefontaine. The Clairefontaine brand has grown to become synonymous with high quality papers, producing over 165,000 tonnes of paper a year (over 450 tonnes a day!) for well-loved brands such as Rhodia.
Clairefontaine papers are made from high quality, responsibly- and sustainably-sourced wood stocks.
