Bartsch, a family story

Gala and Nicolas are cousins, graduates of the ESAG Penninghen Art School and the Van Der Kelen Painting Institute, respectively. They have combined their skills to create collections of chic and playful patterns in their Parisian workshop. Bartsch, whose name comes from their great-grandfather, is the result of the relationship between graphic design and decorative painting. They elaborate their first collection of wallpapers and create Bartsch in 2012.

Reinventing tradition for children

Bartsch brings back into fashion the excellence of traditional crafts by designing chic and dreamy collections for children, with modern patterns and colors. Special care is devoted to the quality of materials, the color palette and the use of traditional craftsmanship to create a durable and elegant result.

Atelier Bartsch: unique and custom-made interior designs

Designs from the Atelier Bartsch are custom-made and adapted to each space, depending on its size, light and spirit. Each pattern is hand-painted directly on the wall. You can see the gesture and the brush strokes; you can feel the texture of the material. You will never find the same pattern or the same texture twice. Each wall is a unique creation. Paints used by Atelier Bartsch are natural and non-toxic acrylic paints. They are washable and give the finish a matte, very opaque and powdered look.

Bartsch Wallpapers: our first collection

In Spring 2012, Bartsch is releasing their first collection of high quality wallpapers. A selection of three exclusive designs - Nuages de Coton (Cotton Clouds), Croissants de Lune (Moon Crescents) and Libertiti Parisien (Parisian Libertiti) - is available in three colors each. Bartsch wallpapers are printed on non-woven paper, using traditional printing techniques from the nineteenth century, to create luxury wallpapers that feel hand painted. They are easy to apply by yourself or by a professional, extremely durable and fade resistant.
