Datcha’s founders, Amandine Furhmann and Mériadek Caraës, both educated in Fine Arts and the History of Art, met each another ten years ago and have worked together ever since in the world of Art and Design. This project, developed over a long period of time, is the culmination of a mutual passion for the craft industry and decoration.
"Fascinated by the riches of craftsmanship, its diversity and its many expressions, we have wished to explore these domains and with them, cultivate our own creation. Each collection begins with research and the discovery of a specific form of production in a region, a material, a technique or particular colours which make up the identity of local heritage. This encounter creates a continuous dialogue with artisans, between traditional craftsmanship and contemporary demands. Like them, we wish to preserve these traditions and this heritage, handed down through generations and to see them live on."
