Recently I was given the opportunity to visit Arte International and attend their 'wallpaper school'. Before I tell you about this amazing experience I'd like to say a very big thank you to Stephan Baptiste and his team for making me feel welcome and part of their team for the two days I spent with them.
During my time at Arte we covered all aspects of their products. Under the watchful eye of wallcovering guru Josef Meyer I learned how to install wallcoverings and what to look for when viewing complaints. The opportunity to brainstorm with Stephan and Josef was incredible.
My tour of the factory was fascinating, observing how the product is printed and packaged, the state-of-the-art technology involved and the lengths they go to ensure a low environmental impact. I was very impressed by the steps that Arte take to ensure that the end product is of a superior quality.
I also viewed the new Hooked On Walls collections Rock Baroque, Urban Classic and Arte's new contract release Verde. I also had a preview of two beautiful new collections from Arte which we will release next month - stay tuned! I had the pleasure of meeting Johan Neven (Export Sales Manager) who is responsible for looking after Unique Fabrics and Natasha...
So thank you again for your hospitality, it was a great experience.
