Smoking is a ritual, one that centers the day and brings a sense of calm and peace. And so, it deserves fine paper for every single smoke: The Imperial is ultra-thin with the distinctive Devambez watermark, handcrafted in small batches for daily smokes.
It is the centerpiece of the Devambez collection, made from organic hemp grown in the mythic Champagne region of France for the purest taste and relaxed burn. The handsome 100% cotton cover is naturally soft to the touch, and embossed with an insignia unique only to Devambez, designed in 1888 by Edouard Devambez himself and made into a hand-sculpted stamp. As with rare books, letterpressed roman numerals indicate the year of production.
Every carton-blanc booklet, styled in the Napoleonic colors of red and blue, crisply contains 32 leaves and tips (or filters), which create a pleasant point of contact for the lips. The gum line is made of vegan and pesticide-free gum arabic, also known as acacia gum, collected from Senegal acacia and Vachellia seya, and offers the ideal stick.
Ideal as a regular part of a frequent smoker’s repertoire, we offer price benefits for orders of 12+ and 24+.
Finally, the booklets are encased in a glassine envelope, made from the same semi-transparent, air-and-moisture-resistant material used to protect fine collectibles. A gentle gesture for every smoke, and a simple pleasure to carry with you always.
