About

UN LIEU SUR TERRE is a one person design studio of home goods based in beautiful Canton de Vaud, in Lavaux region, Switzerland.
I choose the French name Un Lieu sur Terre (it means "A PLACE ON EARTH") for the simplicity and eco-friendliness of its symbolism.

Each home accessory is individually screen printed by hand using water based inks. Due to the handmade nature of my creations, slight variations in placement may occur adding to their charm.

Through my designs, I strive to reflect the joy of using natural materials while making, re-cycling, re-purposing objects, clothes and goods in all kinds. As a former mixed media artist. I still use and apply techniques I learned in my current work on fabric, furniture and soon to come ceramics.

Everything is made by…

HERE IS WHAT I EXPLAIN TO PEOPLE WHEN THEY ASK ME ABOUT MY PROCESS [ON FABRIC] AND WHAT MAKES MY CREATIONS SO UNIQUE AND INSPIRATIONAL :

<< I draw pictures then I turn them into screens. I use those screens to print onto various fabrics all by hand. Sometimes I cut out individual images and applique them onto base cloth (organic or vintage). But I can also choose to print and paint onto base cloth,  building up layers and finally add some hand stitched details or buttons or whatever is inspirational in the moment . Then I add a lot of love and TLC, stir and voila :: Fresh from the studio, ready to seed and sprout positive message in your home.>>

I love the process of making something new out of something old. I think that creating a business that do its part to create a sustainable future is important. No matter how small a part I may get to play in this future, I have the opportunity to use eco-friendly materials and choose to do so.

Thanks for buying Handmade and making this world a better place.
