Design with “Les Pétroleuses”

Graphic designers, illustrators and screen printers, Alice & Valoo created the brand The Female Arsonists (Les Pétroleuses). Armed with cans of paint and wooden frameworks, they give life to poetic and wacky animals.

From the basement of their workshop in Toulouse, the two assistants adorn tote bags, t-shirts, postcards and notebooks with their drawings embellished with their slogans with punk and quirky influences. Born from a common desire to launch a creative project around serigraphy (a technical print using a stencil), they create a limited-series bestiary where each model has a unique touch, thanks to the artisanal process. Their graphic style causes a universe where Valoo’s vivacity and Alice’s sweetness are wonderfully combined. The reference to Christian-Jaque’s movie is obviously intentional. The blonde one, Brigitte Bardot, and the brunette, Claudia Cardinale, are two women with sturdy characters and the film tells the story of a criminal association!

The Female Arsonists (Les Pétroleuses) sell their creations in creators’ markets, shops and exhibitions. They weave their network through France and do not intend to stop there!
