Welcome to our world
Embracing the trend for slow living and seeking to rediscover real life and share our knowledge, we wanted to recreate beautiful educational posters for children.
These canvas prints are both elegant and functional, giving a traditional form of decoration a modern twist. They delicately and playfully introduce knowledge and its transmission, creating a bond between those who look at them.
The canvas prints are designed and made in France. Veritable works of art in and of themselves, they are produced on beautiful cotton canvases with environmentally-friendly inks using an art printer.
“Physical materials for imparting information have either completely disappeared, lack educational content or are unattractive. And where have all those traditional educational wall charts which captured all (or almost all!) our attention at school gone? I’d really like to hang them on the living room wall and watch my children dream, debate, laugh, etc.” Isabelle Diacono
At the peak of a successful career within the Management Committee of a large international group and after 20 years working in the media and telecoms industry, Isabelle Diacono, founder of Les Jolies Planches, decided to slow things down and relearn the art of observation and wonder. An expert in digital innovation and transformation, she gave it all up to focus on her start-up idea which was perfectly in tune with her philosophy on life and work.
Les Jolies Planches came into being in 2017. She left the virtual world behind her to return to reality and emotion: the velvet touch of cotton canvases, the vibrant colours of environmentally-friendly inks…and the end-to-end design of posters focusing on creative, exciting themes which are constantly being extended.
This young publishing company designs its products with talented illustrators providing unique French expertise. As something new, the canvas prints quickly made a splash and they are now distributed across the world in more than 50 concept-stores.
