The story behind Marée
My name is Elise Mertens, owner of Marée. Slow fashion emphasizes thinking out of the box. Which means; no unnecessary waste, but sustainable business. Contribute to the world and be original. All designs are inspired by nature and cultures around us.
The collection is handmade by Ammo Jewellery in Cambodia. Ammo Jewellery provides good working conditions like: fair payment, training, safety and the freedom to be creative. Their own designs are rewarded with a commission.
The material is made of melted bullet casings. These casings are collected from a shooting range in Cambodia. The recycled bullet casings are called yellow brass. The pin and butterfly back are made of pure silver incase of possible allergies.
2 IN 1
The jewellery tarnishes over time. Your piece of jewellery is alive. Over time fingerprints arise and the jewellery gets a golden matte look. Marée has an easy solution for the tarnished surface. With your order a silver polish cloth is enclosed, if you prefer a smooth look. In a blink of an eye your jewellery is like new!
All promotion and packaging material is compact and made of recycled cardboard. The ink is water based. So, no unnecessary waste.
