A collector’s item

ARCHES® has just brought out a revisited version of the iconic wooden clothes peg as a reminder of this artisan manufacturing method. You can be sure it will appeal to the artists and art printers who use our papers, as a charming way to embellish their workshop.

pince en bois ARCHES

True to its values, ARCHES® has chosen the craftsmen of a local firm to produce this iconic object. Bailly is a family firm based in the Jura mountains in France since 1950. Headed by three generations of the same family, the company continues to this day to perpetuate the same values as it always has: tradition, modernity and quality.

The wood used is beech and comes from responsibly managed forests in the Jura.
