Fibrous plaster: Ancestral know-how 

The history of fibrous plaster dates back to the Neolithic, although the materials it uses have changed over time. In the early days, plaster was the material of choice. In Ancient Egypt, a change took place: stucco was mainly used then, especially to build the pyramids. The Greeks, Romans and Gallo-Romans employed this material to create many of their monuments.

The current form of fibrous plaster appeared after the French Revolution. To rebuilt constructions that had been destroyed, an effective material was required, but above all one that was relatively inexpensive. A mix of plaster and plant fibres proved to be the ideal solution.

It was then that the professional of ornamental plasterer came into being. And this ancestral trade is still relevant today. Ornamental plasterers meticulously employ techniques to produce many structures out of fibrous plaster for contemporary décor.
