...between Clémence and Madagascar
After 5 years of studying fashion design &
management in Paris and in New York, Clémence went on her own traveling down Eastern Africa to seek inspiration, then joined a charity in Madagascar.
Mesmerized by the colors, the people, the crafts of the country, she decides to come up with a single design of bags that would be declined in colors and sizes, and that will be entirely handmade by the women artisans of the high-lands of Ambatolampy.
It was in 2015 and she remains the creative director of the brand, travelling the world seeking for authentic crafts to promote.
