Wie alles anfing

Wir sind Noëllie und Oliver Scherrer, ein Paar, das es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht hat, Menschen zu inspirieren, dein Zuhause mit handgefertigten, einzigartigen Schätzen aufzuwerten, damit du in wahrer Harmonie mit deinem Zuhause leben kannst.

Wir kommen ursprünglich aus der Schweiz und haben viele Jahre im wunderschönen Indonesien gelebt und gearbeitet. Das Leben dort hat uns bei vielen Dingen die Augen geöffnet. Wir haben eine tiefere Wertschätzung für die Natur entwickelt, die uns dazu bewegt hat einfacher und umfassender zu leben und unsere Leidenschaft für nachhaltige, handwerkliche Produkte geweckt hat.

Während unserer Zeit in Indonesien hatten wir das Vergnügen, viele Kunsthandwerker kennenzulernen, die natürliche Materialien wie Teakholz, Bambus und Kokosnussschalen verwenden und wiederverwerten, um exquisite Möbel und Dekorationen herzustellen. Die wunderschönen Gegenstände, die sie herstellen, sind nicht nur von Liebe, Sorgfalt und Tradition durchdrungen, sondern haben auch einen kleinen ökologischen Fussabdruck.

Wir haben schnell festgestellt, dass diese Kunsthandwerker diese einzigartigen Produkte nur lokal anbieten. Sie waren sehr daran interessiert, ihre Produkte im Ausland anzubieten, verfügten aber nicht über die Zeit, die Ressourcen, das Geld oder die fachlichen Kenntnisse, um dies zu verwirklichen.

Diese Erkenntnis brachte uns auf eine Idee: Was wäre, wenn wir mit diesen Kunsthandwerkern zusammenarbeiten könnten, um ihre Produkte weltweit anzubieten? Dies würde nicht nur das Leben dieser hart arbeitenden lokalen Kunsthandwerker verbessern, sondern auch die Verbraucher dazu ermutigen, achtsamer zu leben und auf die Umwelt aufzupassen. Darüber hinaus hätten Menschen auf der ganzen Welt die Möglichkeit diese einzigartigen Einrichtungsgegenstände in ihr Heim zu bringen.

Mit diesen Ideen im Hinterkopf wurde Mojo Boutique geboren.

Bewusstes Konsumverhalten

Bewusstes Konsumverhalten ist das Fundament unseres Unternehmens. Jeder Aspekt unseres Geschäfts, von der Herstellung der Produkte bis zum Versand zu dir nach Hause, wird mit grösster Sorgfalt und Respekt für die Kunsthandwerker und die Natur durchgeführt.

Wir halten uns an die höchsten Fair Trade-Standards und arbeiten intensiv daran, dass der CO2-Ausstoss, der beim Transport unserer Produkte von den Händen der Handwerker zu dir nach Hause entsteht, zu 100 % ausgeglichen wird. Darüber hinaus pflanzen wir für jede Bestellung einen Baum mit unserem Partner onetreeplanted.org.

Wir hoffen, dass Mojo Boutique dazu beitragen kann, dass mehr Menschen auf Massenware verzichten und sich stattdessen für Einzigartigkeit, Handwerkskunst und die umfassenden positiven Auswirkungen von umweltfreundlichen, handwerklich hergestellten Produkten entscheiden.

MATERIALIEN AUS NACHHALTIGEN RESSOURCEN

We use sustainably-sourced materials such as recycled wood, bamboo, rattan and others as they are all-natural and regenerating materials; nothing based on hydrocarbons.

Upcycled Wood

We are the only Boutique focusing exclusively on upcycled wood for all our wooden furniture. We use recycled wood coming from old furniture, demolished houses, or disaffected boats and other objects built from solid wood at the end of their lifetime. We choose strong wood known for aging well and wood having natural oil inside. Teak wood is the perfect example.When you opt for one of our recycled wooden furniture you make a perfect choice for our environment. No additional trees are cut and existing resources are valued instead of it becoming trash.However, you also make an esthetical choice! First quality teak wood looks nicer the older it is. The veins and knots of the wood are more visible, and its color is warmer, slightly more reddish/brownish. It simply has more character 😊To upcycle wooden furniture our artisans, need to sand it, polish it, remove all previous colors and nails before creating the new furniture or deco from zero. We use a 100% natural and handmade process to do so. On some of them and only on hidden parts, such as below a table or inside a drawer, you might see small painting dots or a scratch or small holes. It comes from the previous object before it has been upcycled.The good thing is that because it is recycled, each piece is different, and each wood has its own story and character. You will have a truly unique piece while making a mindful lifestyle choice.

Wasserhyazinthe

Did you know that water Hyacinth is one of the fastest-growing plants known? Some were found to even grow up to 5 meters a day in South East Asia. You can imagine the state of the plant after only two weeks. It grows like crazy! Each plant can also produce thousands of seeds each year, and these seeds can remain viable for more than 28 years. Such vigorous growers and reproducers!They are natural, but in most of the countries have been placed artificially. Because of its extreme invasive capacity, they have rapidly reached lakes and rivers. They must be collected to keep them under control. After having been picked and dried in the sun, it becomes a flexible and robust material. A perfect choice for natural, timeless, and durable items without affecting our precious natural resources, an ideal solution for any mindful shopper.

Pandan Leaf

Material from Pandan leave (or Daun Pandan in Indonesia) is surprisingly often confused with seagrass one. Seagrass cultivation can be damageable for the environment as it is a filter of the ocean and a nursery of many species. However, the Pandan leaves are, fortunately, a whole different story! Pandanus tree is used for centuries in South East Asia for cooking as well as clothing. The leaves are fast, and for this reason, there is no difference in its abundance noticed.Artisans collect the leaves, cutting only mature leaves so that the plant will naturally regenerate. The roots are anyway of no direct use, but only the older leaves are. It is an eco-friendly process as such. Then the leaves are sliced into thin strips and sorted. The whole process is more demanding than water hyacinth, for instance. Sometimes further chemical colouring is used on Pandan leaves, but at Mojo Boutique we don’t. Another ideal solution of material for any mindful shopper.

Banana Leaf

Banana leaves are large, flexible, and waterproof. They are often used as ecologically friendly disposable food containers or as “plates” in South East Asia.  They are also widely used for decorative and symbolic purposes in numerous Hindu and Buddhist ceremonies. Banana cultivation and use of its leave go back to at least 5000 BFC!We pick only the dry and already dead leaves, this is not only better for the environment, but it also makes the process easier. It is a robust and fully waterproof material and can be used to store bulky items or used in a bathroom.

Kokosnuss-Schale

Coconut is an excellent example of “everything can be used; we shouldn’t throw away anything.” After having drunk the coconut water or use it to make milk or powder, wouldn’t it be a pity to throw away the rest? The production of coconut bowls creates no waste at all! It is even the opposite as they are already “waste” as such. Unfortunately, each year, millions of coconut shells are burnt, and their combustion releases CO2 and methane in the atmosphere.So, if you chose to use a coconut bowl, you would have a stylish and quality bowl, but secondly, you will avoid burning the shell! What a win win win solution!Coconut shells are all different in sizes and shapes, like snowflakes ?. Like the rest of all the material we use at Mojo Boutique, they are natural and bio-degradable.Are you wondering what is the icing on the cake? It helps you to eat mindfully. Would you imagine putting a greasy or artificial food in such a natural and beauty bowl? Eyes are so important in the process of satisfaction, and this bowl allows us to enjoy pieces of apples as much as grassy chips. You don’t believe it? Have a try!

Gewebtes Gras

Woven grass as a fabric implies the most delicate and tricky process to create. No need to wonder too long about the material: we are talking about grass — the most widely and abundant plant on earth ?. But not any green is chosen at Mojo: sustainable long stems only are picked. Because they are fragile, the woven process is minacious. This fabric is better to be used for a lovely finishing or to add some whiter line on the item, which allows avoiding chemical coloring for a last lighter touch.

Rattan

Rattans are lianas. They grow up to hundreds of meters long. It also grows much faster than most tropical wood. Rattan is easy to harvest, requires straightforward tools, and is much easier to transport. Rattan exploitation makes it a potential tool in forest maintenance. We work with rattan coming from the plantation and with harvesters who don’t cut stems too young to avoid reducing their ability to re-sprout.

Baumwolle

Everyone knows this soft and fluffy fiber. Visually many cottons can be similar. However, the process and the impact on our planet can be extremely different from one method of creation to another. We use organic and natural cotton without using dying chemicals.

Bamboo

Or should we call it the Popeye’s choice? It is sooooo resistant, and no surprise, the construction industry in Asia uses bamboo. Bamboo has a higher specific comprehensive strength than wood, bricks, or concrete and a tensile strength that rivals steel! At the same time and most importantly, it is eco-friendly. On top of that, bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants (as Water Hyacinth) in the world. Certain species grow 1 mm every 90 seconds, crazy no? We use it as a raw product, and there is no need to treat it using complicated and burdensome processes or chemicals. Bamboo is simply like the magic potion of any material and a smart choice of mindful shopper.
