Takaé wants to take you on a trip using your mind’s eye thanks to its design of handbags and accessories inspired by origami.
She discovered origami many years ago and it was during a trip to Japan that the idea came to her to adapt this concept to develop original handbags and accessories.
Takaé divides its bags and accessories into 2 ranges. A permanent collection made with vegan leather and recycled belts from the automotive and aviation industries, bought in Quebec, and limited editions, made of materials that are given a second life, to reduce waste.
Takaé is a name of Japanese origin that recalls the Japanese concept of origami, which is the art of folded paper.
The mission & the Takaés values
The mission through Takaé is to recycle as much as possible, giving a second life to unused or remaining materials of Quebec companies, by creating eco-responsible, minimalist handbags and clutch wallets with an original and practical design.
In 15 years, global garment production has doubled, as has waste. Every year, 5 million tons of textiles are put on the market. Of this volume, 4 million new and used textiles are discarded.
The world’s awareness of its consumption in terms of fashion will grow through a community responsible for change and therefore from the movement of slow fashion.
With this in mind, Takaé wishes to promote a circular economy locally and therefore promote the reduction of environmental impact with a more responsible fashion sense.
Buy less, but buy wisely!
