Slow design and craftmanship
Folks was founded with the intention of bringing the importance of handicrafts and artistic creation back into focus. We’re forging a path towards a non-standardized notion of design, in keeping with our personal code of ethics. We’ve recently begun producing our own collections, composed of pieces that we dream up hand in hand with our designers.
Our approach is centered around slow design, self-manufacturing, made-to-order production and local distribution chains. The creations featured on our e-shop are therefore available in very few places or, in some cases, are even exclusive to us.
At Folks, we believe it’s crucial to place the individual creator at the heart of their work.
Providing visibility to the person behind a piece is of the utmost importance to us, because we firmly believe in a more sustainable form of consumerism, one that is respectful of both the environment and the people who design and make the items we sell. Every object selected or commissioned by Folks was imagined and crafted by promising designers in their own creative studios, produced independently or in collaboration with local artisans.
We want to come together. To blend quality with originality. To fuse the useful with the beautiful.
To gather emerging designers around a concept that was born from a shared passion for beauty, functionality and decor.
But we also want to unite two separate spheres: those who seek out unique, exclusive objects, and those who imagine and create them. Above all else, we want to create a community of people who are passionate about design, people who want to consume less and consume better.
That’s why, with this desire for interpersonal exchange in mind, we organize nomadic events and try to follow the major design fairs so that you may discover our objects in person, touching, testing and admiring them firsthand.
