The inspiration behind the collection
Founder Marie, was raised in Mauritius, a tropical island nestled to the east of Madagascar. Her inspiration is drawn from the beauty of the nature and the natural materials the earth provides. It is important for her that the collection features plant based materials including raffia sourced from Madagascar Island and natural dyes only.
We honour craftsmanship and, by collaborating with artisans in Madagascar and Mauritius, we help them create sustainable livelihoods for themselves and their families.
We strive to make unique and eco-friendly products. We work closely with two small ateliers on the Islands whose various skills of dyeing, weaving and embroidery come together harmoniously. Little Known Makers was created with the vision to fill homes with pieces that are not mass produced and don’t come at the expense of the planet.
