Medieval meets modern

  • • The Rousvoal family expertise dates back to 1856
  • • They are passionate about using technique as a means to innovate
  • • They are dedicated to working with contemporary artists

The Ateliers Duchemin, created in the 1950s by Marie and Charlotte Rousvoal’s grandfather, gave a name to what now represents six generations of stained glass artisans. After initial careers elsewhere – in philosophy and theatre for Marie, in fashion design for Charlotte – the sisters decided to continue the business their grandparents and parents had founded. “When I joined Marie in the family business,” Charlotte tells us, “it was the most natural thing in the world.” Marie agrees, “We grew up in the workshop, it’s our second home.” Duchemin stands out not only for its mastery of a Medieval technique, but also for the duo’s continued focus passed down by their parents in working with contemporary artists.
