The daughter of Jules Leleu, Paule joined the family company at a young age. Over time she became the firm's colorist and the head of the design studio, where she oversaw the textile department and designed more than 500 maguettes for carpets, fabrics, and wallpapers. This extraordinary design, hand-woven in wool, is an orderly, rectangular arrangement of circles in blue and white, set against an olive background.
