This year, zChocolat has decided to slip on its haute-couture dress and wear the stylish Frenchy Jacquard pattern on all of its Holiday gift boxes.
1/ zBox Holiday Collection: “Chic & modern”
Celebrate the spirit of the season with this ultra-chic line of holiday themed ballotin boxes. A fashionable, ivory Jacquard style snowflake silhouette set against a vivid crimson backdrop accords these chocolate gems an “haute-couture” look. This fine and frosty collection has emerged from one of our most popular vessels to deliver the wonders and magic of zChocolat during the holidays. Each box can be adorned with a personal message, diamond laser-engraved on a black plate for further year-end joy.
2/ Basswood Holiday Collection: “Elegance and simplicity”
This holiday season, treat your family, friends or customers to a gift of elegance and simplicity made of 100% natural basswood: a token of friendship, affection and loyalty. Each box is neatly decorated with a hip-chic Jacquard designed snowflake carving – a powerful and fashionable symbol of the winter season. Selected for its naturally light toned timber, basswood is ideally suited to accentuate the laser etched snowflake and personal greeting on the lid of the box. Each holds an assortment of our most delectable zChocolat treats, assuring a gift that will be warmly received and savored by all.
3/ Mahogany Holiday Collection: “Excellence”
This year offer a lavish present from our grandest holiday gift collection. Each gift box is handcrafted in the Jura region of France from rich, claret hued mahogany. The covers are finished with an inset of a shimmering, intricate, golden snowflake dressed in Jacquard style. Worthy of the finest gala event, these “in style” gifts contain an assortment of our master-crafted, artisan chocolates to convey all holiday wishes with refined excellence. You can even surprise your recipients with a special photographic image affixed to the underside of the lid or a personal message engraving.
A bit of history
Presented in Paris for the first time in 1801, this particular weaving mechanism was immediately recognized as an important leap in technology, allowing patterns to be stored on cards and re-used to fabricate same-design products. For the last two decades, this distinct pixelated-looking weaving style has appeared and re-appeared in some of the most iconic couture collections and in everyday fashion making its comeback between Paisley and retro-chic. All-time favorite of many designers such as Givenchy and Diane Von Furstenberg, Jacquard was the star of the spotlight down the catwalk of a 2012 Christian Dior event in Shanghai and at the 2013 NYC Fall Fashion Show bringing back every time its timeless pattern of pure class.
zChocolat’s first choice
For its 2013-2014 Holiday Collections, it was essential for zChocolat to relook its boxes taking into account a historic design with a true symbolism representing style, authenticity and a touch of childhood magic. The extremely complex and expensive technique of Jacquard weaving, demanding a 100% Made-in-France “savoir-faire” was zChocolat’s first choice pattern, embracing its own fundamentals: elegance, intelligence and excellence.
A personalized concierge service for the holidays
zChocolat offers a never-before-seen service (7 days a week) for their customers that consists in personally telephoning the recipients to inform them that a special gift is on its way. This service is ideal when late in gift-sending or even simply to arouse the receiver’s curiosity.
