We are very happy to show you this first article. As we want to put you at ease from the start : here are some explanations about the way we will work together.
So a presentation is essential...
Who is Papa Josette?
Papa Josette is Grégory, a father passionate of slide and art, who decided in 2014 to create the brand.
And I am Thibaud. If I write here, it's not entirely by chance. A few years ago, I was one of the first clients to buy the first version of Papa Josette chairs, yes that's true ! As proof, my chair has the serial number 00008, and still adorns my office today. At the same time, and since almost 10 years, I take care of the blog Jackspots.fr, on which I transform myself into a skateboarder / traveler to share my experience at all the skateparks where I'm going to ride. And now, I also write the articles of the blog Papa Josette!
Art and skateboarding, does it match?
You may know it already if you have seen our website (you did it don't you ?), Papa Josette is a intelligent mix of design and skateboard.
Skaters have always been sensitive to art. If the top of the skateboard is often seized black, the other side often hides a finely studied visual, purchase argument unstoppable as well as the size or the mark of the board.
There is a reason why many artists appropriated these boards to put their art on it, like Mhy deck Custom. Works sometimes intended to be seen at skateparks, but sometimes just to decorate living rooms.
So you'd understand, art as an integral part of skateboarding, but is the converse true ? At Papa Josette, we are convinced of it. And that's what inspired us to offer high-end, modern and design products.
An every day work to break the codes
In this blog, we'd like to show it to you. Trying to break the border you think is existing between art and skateboard.
Thanks to a few articles published every month, you will discover what is new the world of design. We will offer you experiences, stories, and examples of trends... And of course, informations about Papa Josette expertise, production methods and our techniques.
