Right after our enginnering studies, we went to live for almost 10 years in Indonesia. First, we lived in Jepara on the Java island in a village specialized in furniture carpentry, where we both worked in a furniture production and design factory.
A few years later, we shared our time between Jepara and Bali. We built and developed a holiday villa for tourists passing through this beautiful island.
From this experience we kept in mind the pleasure of meeting another civilization, sharing knowledge, discovering the world and drawing inspiration from what is best done elsewhere in the world.
After ten beautiful Asian years, we decided to leave the palm trees and the beach and return to settle in the North of France, our beautiful home region.
Baptiste took over the management of an industrial group for a while. On my side, I began a project that combines my passions: design, production, creativity and entrepreneurship.
As I met people, I realized that in addition to reinventing a product, I wanted to tell a story. I wanted to create a universe in which I could express myself.
Alaskan MAKER is born!
Why Alaskan MAKER?
Alaskan because we drew our inspiration from the American Northwest to create this brand. A 5,000-mile journey to the end of the world to find the raw nature. An authenticity found in the choice of materials and style of Alaskan MAKER products. For a few moments, feel the freedom of the trappers and lumberjacks of yesteryear!
MAKER because they are the inspiration of this brand. To make them proud of their achievements, big and small, successful or in the making.
And also because we built this project with our hands, We chose to do everything ourselves to begin: website, photography, logo, graphic charter, SEO, product design and prototypes. Positioning ourselves as 2.0 entrepreneurs makes us very happy!
Now we know each other better ;-)
