Joseph Rimbaud (known as "Rostiak") is a French pipe maker based near Saint-Claude in France. He became part of the pipe world when, as a student, he wanted to buy his first pipe but could not find one that he both liked and was affordable. As a woodworking passionate, he decided to make his own pipe. He was hired at the Chacom factory in 2003 and two years later, became manager of the assembly process. He quit his job in 2006 and started working as a carpenter, while spending his evenings and week-ends with Pierre Morel, who taught him everything he needed to know to become a pipe maker. Joseph launched his own brand in 2016 and makes pipes with a stylish design and unique shape. He particularly enjoys making light pipes with a small bowl. Each one of his pipes is a unique piece!
