History & heritage

The production of paper is a long tradition for the Meurthe Valley, since the first paper mills there have been created in the sixteenth century. It is in this favorable environment that the Papeteries de Clairefontaine started their production in 1858, in the small town of Etival Clairefontaine, located 90 km from Strasbourg on the banks of the Meurthe. Taking advantage of the rags provided by the local textile industry, Clairefontaine will become in a few years one of the most important factories in the region.

In order to complete its offer, the company will be interested in the manufacture of envelopes in 1880 and then in that of notebooks.
