Terms of use


1.1   These general conditions of sale (hereinafter referred to as the "GTC") govern all relations between Bleu Solstice, whose registered office is located at 18 rue franklin 69002 Lyon, registered under the number SIRET 817 820 665 00021 and any person wishing to make a purchase of one or more creation(s) (as defined below) offered for sale by the Artist-Author in his sales space (as below defined) accessible on the website


2.1 - . All Bleu Solstice products offered for sale are created and manufactured in France in the Lyon workshop of the Artist-Author. These products are original cyanotypes. This is an alternative photography process involving a photosensitive surface reacting to ultraviolet light. If, by the artist's approach, the vast majority of cyanotypes are produced using the sun, some may have been created using a UV lamp for practical or technical reasons. Each cyanotype is a photogram obtained by contact with real plants, fresh or dried and pressed and/or photo negatives. They were made one by one, which gives them their original character. It is possible that the same flower, leaf, branch or any element used as an object is used on several cyanotypes. But the details, shadows, traces of the application of the photosensitive product with a brush, intensity of the color will always be different. No Solstice Blue photogram may be reproduced identically.

2.2 - The items present on the site and offered for sale are original and therefore all unique.  The sale of a product immediately means that it is out of stock. The online store management tool will automatically indicate its unavailability. The Article, although indicated as unavailable, may remain visible on the store until the Artist-Author deletes its reference.

2.3 - Being artisanal products, the format of the paper or the photogram can know slight variations. In addition, each cyanotype, as the technical stage of rinsing assumes, was fully immersed in water for several minutes. Although every precaution is taken during this step, it is possible that small spots of yellow, green or blue color appear on the back of the cyanotype. This is simply the dissolution in water of the photosensitive product (purpose of this rinsing step) which may have been redeposited on the paper. Appearing on the back of the product, these possible traces, in the judgment of the Artist, in no way interfere with the front and therefore the visible part of the cyanotype. These imperfections are due to the artisanal character of the creations and of the very process of the cyanotype.

2.4 - The photographs presented on the sales area are the real shots of the items. Some details, shades, tints may, through photography and the screen, differ from reality. 
The photographs and texts illustrating the articles are given for information only and do not enter into the contractual field.
