In 1858, Jean-Baptiste Bichelberger chose the small town of Etival-Clairefontaine to set up his paper mill. Taking advantage of the rags supplied by the local textile industry, Clairefontaine grew to become one of the most important factories in the industry.

This guarantees not only consistent product quality, but also controls the environmental impact of the manufacturing process. Clairefontaine is now managed by sixth generation family members.

History

The original paper mill factory was founded in 1854 by Jean-Bapiste Bichelberger who decided to put up paper windmills for production. This same factory has been producing paper ever since. Paper mills are factories that make paper from vegetable fibres such as wood pulp, old rags and other ingredients which make it possible to produce in a more eco-friendly and sustainable way. Instead of making a whole lot of paper at once, in paper mills the pages are made one by one, by hand. To manage the papermaking, Clairefontaine as stated above, is managing several hundreds of hectares of fir and spruce trees in the Vosges Mountains. The company is still in family hands, for already six generations.
