Process of converting recuperated materials in new products with high esthetical standards and a better environmental value.
coll.part. offers a second life to materials transformed into smart and unique fashion accessories and home decor. Human is at the center of our values but the material is the starting point of each of our collections. These materials tell us stories of lives and cultures. They claimed to give back value to what we misconsider : the wasted, the refused, the used. Upcycling causes the colours and impressions in the core material to change and also gives the collections their unique identity.
>>>>PORTRAIT OF THE DESIGNER>>>>
A peculiar collection of accessories and home decor that have a soul and a sense. Flavors of travel and encounters.
Maybe you mean: 'la_creatrice_slider' or 'Slider6' or 'coll-part-is-about'
It is not only vital, but a basic principle of coll.part. to associate creativity with ethical production. We build with our partners a respectfull and long term relationship and work to develop those values that we believe in. We choose our producers in the region from which comes the material in order to avoid as much as possible useless transportation of our products.
coll.part. would like to remind that behind every object there are men and women who make our discoveries so exciting. We wish to offer meaningful objects and to emphasize the link between objects and men, those who imagine it, those who manufacture it, those who sell it, those who throw it away, those who recycle it…
coll.part. is the colourful world of Nina Raeber. Curiosity and a true appetite for discovery have brought her to various places around the globe. In 2003 she founded coll.part. in Cambodia. Today she is based in Lausanne, Switzerland. The collections evolve and follows encounters, travels and inspirations. Our objects are smart and fun-looking accessories made to survive seasonal fashion trends but over all, they make sense and have a soul.
The coll.part. tribe is made of people who kept an inquiring mind and a generous soul. They have a demand for quality and meaning. Sensitive to design as to upcyclins, as long as it is intelligent, poetic or ironic. These people assert themselves and their tastes without awaiting the fashion world to legalise their choice.
Since 2017, the distribution and development of the brand is assured by Lucda and Madafi from Lausanne.
