Devambez has created an exclusive matchbook in partnership with the Rosselli family, owners of the last surviving traditional workshop in Europe. Each match reminds us of their unique Italian craftsmanship.
In 1820, Philippe Barrier founded the first match factory in Empoli, near Florence in Tuscany, Italy.
His distinctive matchboxes gained world renown. In 1832, he decided to sell his workshops to Luigi Santini, and in 1853 they were taken over by Giuseppe Rosselli. For nine generations, the Rosselli family has created poplar wood matches known for their exceptional quality.
