In despite of its efficient simplicity, the "Plissé" technique is also highly appreciated by the Paradoxe team for this feeling of randomness that you get after using it, simply because you can't reproduce it identically on 2 different pieces. In other words, the "Plisse" technique highlights perfectly the skills and all the essence of the brand, consisting in proposing high-quality and unique artisanal pieces that you won't find anywhere else.
