rêve vert was established in May 2020. It was the passion project of Sasse, who at the time had a regular 9-5 job, so it all started out by working late nights and on weekends.
Our very first item, was our beautiful Jute laundry basket. Sasse had been looking for the perfect laundry basket, which would also be decorative in itself. It had to be square and made of beautiful natural materials, this turned out to be almost impossible to find. The reason for the square shape, was so they could stand next to each other and not take up too much space. Living in Copenhagen, many apartments do not have a lot of room, so this seemed like a good solution.
The hunt began to find someone who could produce this basket and most important of all, with a very high regard for who was producing the items. The choice fell on the very talented women artisans in Bangladesh, who now handmake all our Jute and palm leaf collections.
To this day, our Jute laundry basket is still our most popular item.
We have since added more designs and products, all handmade by artisans around the world.
Our products are handmade by talented artisans around the world.
The majority of our products are handmade by women in Bangladesh, using traditional techniques passed down generation to generation, where we support our women artisans with fair wages and the possibility to work from the local rural villages.
This way we hope to help strengthen them in the local communities and be able to pay for education for their children, also improving possibilities for the next generations.
