Coutume

Based in Paris, Coutume studio designs interior decoration items together with artisan communities based in Guatemala and Mexico, working with natural dyeing techniques and without any machine. Our house collections are handmade and at a fair price, respecting ancestral know-how. The pieces come from these collaborations, between modernity and tradition.

Custom goes looking for unique manufacturing workshops and techniques. We are inspired by textile archives, old and rare fabrics, selected and reworked with care, for exceptional interiors.

About the founder: After studying fashion design in Paris, Céline Gaiardo worked as a textile designer in the luxury ready-to-wear segment at the Louis Vuitton creation studio and then in the textile craft sector. For two years, she designed the collections for an association of artisans in Guatemala and discovered the textile wealth of these regions of the world. Together, they work to preserve the tradition of belt-making, an economic source for many local women. Proud of the friendships created with these communities and the projects accomplished together, she decides to continue promoting the talent and stories of these artisans.
