Founded by Berlin-born, South Africa- and Paris-educated Katja Anger, Savadi Maison is a newly launched line of home goods “made by exceptional crafts(wo)men from all over the world, selected or developed in collaboration with our Paris-based team,” as Anger says. In July, Savadi opened shop in the Marais, sharing space with clothing designer Karim Hadjab.
“We set up the store with the intention of inviting people to slow down and to take a break from their day-to-day lives by discovering handmade objects; our aim is to take our customers on a journey to the Ethiopian highlands, to Japanese blacksmith towns, and to the British woodlands to meet the makers and learn about their crafts, immersing them in the art of glassblowing, handloom weaving, leather craftsmanship, and natural dyeing techniques. And more globally, we are trying to promote slow consumption and to reconnect the objects with their makers and cultural context.”
