Cromatico CA

"Cromático, -ca. is a mass-dyed coloured translucent paper. Coloured tracing paper was not invented until the end of the twentieth century. Just imagine! If Ieoh Ming Pei had been able to design his pyramid on a sheet of Indigo tracing paper, the majestic tetrahedron would have been a sapphire glittering in the courtyard of the Louvre. Transparency and colour are indissociable. Water is transparent and yet the sea is blue, turquoise or green. The air is transparent and yet the sky is blue, grey or orange and red. And what would stained glass be without brightly coloured glass? Translucent or diaphanous, Cromático plays marvellously with see-through or layered effects, suggesting without showing, opening up an infinite third dimension for the imagination to explore. Long live transparency. Long live vivid colours."

Emeric Thibierge

Mass dyed, Cromático colours are unrivalled in their intensity, luminosity and homogeneity. Cromático can easily be used for diverse printing techniques.

Cromático is available in 15 colours and 8 grammages. Matching envelopes.

Cromático are distinguished by their design. Why shouldn’t a translucent envelope give a little rush of emotion too? Emeric Thibierge wanted to print the glue in a pattern. Something like a formal French garden. He wanted the design of the glue to be part of the overall aesthetics of the object. And he patented the idea.

Thibierge & Comar’s papers are especially treasured by designers, communication agencies and advertisers.

In the luxury product sector, paper is an essential expression of image. The quality of the Thibierge & Comar Collection is highly appreciated by Chanel, Dior, LVMH, Baccarat, Hermès, Cartier.

The success of this paper firmly anchors Thibierge & Comar in the Haute Couture paper niche.
