Barons Papillom Story

Eric Lemaitre has created Barons Papillom in 2013, initially, a single unisex model: the Barons original punched leather.
Since then, the brand Barons Papillom has never stopped growing, and improve.
It is today in a workshop on the banks of the Loire, in Montjean, that Barons Papillom sneakers are made,
with all the attention of French quality and craftsmanship.
Eric Lemaitre, also concerned about environmental problems, wanted
elegant and clever sneakers, but also be part of a slow fashion movement

PRINT MARIE-ANTOINETTE

The so-called "placed" printing is done in Montbron in Charente,
It allows us to get original patterns and to keep
the right harmonic dimension according to each size.
Printing in France reduces production times
and reduce our carbon footprint.
