Paule Marrot

Paule Marrot (1902-1987) was a Parisian painter, engraver and textile designer. Her designs were colorful and lighthearted; a definite joie de vivre vibe. She was influenced by Impressionist painter Auguste Renoir and Fauvist painter Raoul Dufy and was associated with the Art Deco movement.

Her work has seen a modern revival with Nike (hightops!), Anthropologie and Hayden-Harnett bags.

Happy Friday!
