for original design

La Variété: ethical and durable articles

La Variété was created by two friends who, whilst living in Thailand, fell in love with the local craftsmanship.

Back in Spain, they decided to combine European design with raw materials from Thailand in order to create a range of original, environmentally-friendly items packed with character.

The pair created their own brand and began designing objects in their studio in Barcelona. Later, they headed back to northern Thailand to establish links with families of local craftsmen, selecting raw materials for their products. The craftsmen then transformed the materials into small objects which will add a touch of charm and exoticism to any interior.

Everything is done on a small scale, from the shop itself to the methods of production – everything is produced in small quantities, in good working conditions and for a faire price. It’s a win-win situation!

Raquel and her partner are not, as you might think from the name of the shop, French. So why “La Variété”?

The answer is striaghtforward: whilst struggling to find words to describe their concept, the designers came across the French term whilst telling friends about their new project. Since they liked the sound, they adopted it as the name of their shop.

You’ll find a whole variety of little decorative articles. Original candle-holders with pure, clean lines, wooden dishes and plates, pretty miniature vases with vacuum cups or wooden bases, and bamboo lamps of all shapes and sizes sit alongside cushions, colourful fabric bracelets and lovely little wooden coathooks. You’ll find it hard to resist!
