Their distinctive packaging, unique vintage-style boxes and tins were first used by the company over two centuries ago.

The artistic integrity and passion for art is still tangible , just hold each perfectly created package of chocolates and you’ll feel it, after all, every design is inspired by real historical artworks created by art greats including Rafael de Penagos and Alfons Mucha.
Alfons Mucha, a creative genius who inspired art and chocolate lovers alike
One of the most prominent artists of the Art Nouveau movement, Alfons Maria Mucha was born on the 24th of July, 1860 in Ivančice, Moravia, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire , now known as the Czech Republic.
A prolific artist, Mucha created a plethora of beautiful paintings, posters and illustrations that are as impactful now, as they were when he created them. Mucha arrived in Paris in 1887 and lived a productive, but largely anonymous life until he produced the promotional poster ‘Gismonda’ in 1894 for the French stage and early film actress Sarah Bernhardt, once known as the ‘most famous actress the world has ever known’. This powerful image and the subsequent images he created, would catapult him to fame. Known as ‘Style Mucha’, Mucha developed an extremely effective and much copied style of advertising poster, featuring a beautiful woman surrounded by flowers and decorative elements. The allure of the featured woman would capture the viewers attention and ultimately direct their attention to the main message – the product itself. Proving himself not only to be a consummate artist but a marketing master too, Mucha was truly ahead of his time.
Mucha created a variety of memorable advertising posters for legendary Parisian printing company F. Champenois. In fact his artwork for Champenois Imprimeur-Editeur is almost identical to the poster painted for Chocolate Amatller Barcelona.
An artist to be studied as well as admired, in Mucha’s works the form and function is equal. Amatller offer the same principle with their chocolates and their tins – Amatller packaging is the same top quality as the delicious chocolate content. And so we have it… A sweet little piece of chocolate enveloped in affordable artwork. A truly unique delectable treat from chocolate amatller!
