Facteur céleste x Design for Peace
Facteur Céleste invests every day for the autonomy of women through a quality craftsmanship, based on the recycling of materials.
Their main mission is the economic integration of women in difficulty (illiterate, disabled, in precarious situation), and intrinsically recognition through work, awareness of the problem of waste, cultural miscegenation …
In this context, with their partner, Les Filles du Facteur Association, Facteur Céleste gathered women in Burkina Faso and trained them in crochet technique to make objects and fashion accessories from recycled plastic bags, but also to manage their structure autonomously. Facteur Céleste buys at a fair price the items they manufacture and encourages them to sell their own creations independently. (Source: Les Filles du Facteur)
Through a partnership with the association Les Filles du Facteur and its brand, Facteur Céleste, Design for Peace has been interested in the technique of the plastic bag hook.
For this special collaboration with Design for Peace, Ouagadougou’s hook-and-loop women worked on leather baskets made by Tuareg craftswomen.
