Episode 1

and sharing

For over twenty years now, Comptoir has been dedicated to the spirit of sharing its inspirations,
legacy, knowledge and now invites you to discover a fantastic young creator and her unique skills.

Julie Lansom


Julie lives in Paris. As a child, she was always looking at her grandmother’s hands. One grandmother was a silk
weaver, the other an expert knitter. As a young woman, she reinvented her career, imagining her own gesture,
which helped her weave her multicoloured threads and breathe life into extraordinary lights.

My grandmothers played a really
important role. I watched them
and tried to copy their gestures
from my childhood days.

I use my head and my hands
all day long. The manual aspect
is really important
to me.
