Based in Paris since 1989, the Feuille d’Or workshop is a reference in the graphic arts and crafts sector in the field of gold leaf leather gilding, an increasingly rare area of expertise.


This workshop offers gilding and hot stamping on new or old pieces: restoration of antique books, hand copies of old ones, classic but also modern gilding, gilding for unique bindings.

The workshop works in different materials (leather, paper, wood, cloth, etc.). On exceptional occasions it also carries out gilding on pieces of leather furniture.

La feuille d’Or performs all hot stamping and gilding operations: laying the primer, laying the gold leaf, heating irons, printing in leather, cleaning excess leaf. The workshop also carries out natural markings and colour film markings on the backs of rounded bindings, creation of leather mosaics (crimped, lace, reliefs), work on other contemporary materials.

All of its services are high-end. It has a loyal clientèle of collectors, bookbinders and public institutions, such as the BNF (French national library).
