La Cocotte Paris is made up of two heads and four hands : those of the two designers, Laetitia Bertrand et Andrea Wainer.
They met at the Paris Art Déco School and share a taste for art and traditions, and hold know-how and craftsmanship techniques in high esteem.
In 2007, in rue Paul Bert in Paris, they opened an experimental space devoted to the French-style art of living, to bring more fantasy into their favourite influences, and to cultivate original creations together.
They christened their boutique La Cocotte, gave it the emblem of a good-looking sooty-eyed chick that they printed on some dishtowels for the opening.
The success was immediate. La Cocotte Paris was born.
Influenced by various sources, La Cocotte Paris appreciates the beauty of the past times while never hesitating to bring a different perspective and bold angle to everyday objects, kitchenware, and household textiles.
Its creations bring together precise references to traditional craftsmanship and an esthetic, original and up-to-date form of expression.
Its sense of humour is palpable and is translated through its syle, clean and precise lines, and its carefully-chosen soberly-mixed colors.
Its feathered icons - Cocotte, Kokette, Paulette and Hannette- form a major part of all its collections. Witty and rebellious, they embody the graphic mood of the brand.
La Cocotte Paris is now well established in its Paris boutique in rue Paul Bert, where it cultivates its avant-garde, chic and up-to-date spirit. Its creations are a wink at France's tradition of the art of living and gastronomy.
The creations of La Cocotte Paris come from intuitions and creative boldness. All the collections originate from the two heads and four hands of designers Laetitia Bertrand and Andrea Wainer working together. The designs, the colours of the past, and the beautiful ageless materials provide a great source of inspiration for them and are often the starting point for a collection.
The two creators at La Cocotte Paris mix styles, rejuvenate patterns, and invent daring colour associations. And always, their own style is present, with its sense of humour, its firm and precise lines, its carefully-chosen, soberly-mixed colours.
Choosing to produce in Europe shows a desire to favour closeness to Paris, traditional know-how, and small-scale companies respectful of the environment.
The production of the collections takes place mainly in the region of Porto in Portugal, which has a long textile tradition. The two creators at La Cocotte Paris can thus collaborate closely with their suppliers and draw on their expertise to bring their creations to life.
With their precious assistance La Cocotte Paris can manufacture its own fabrics in natural materials - cotton or linen - by having control over the whole production line, from weaving to printing, silkscreen printing, sewing and finally packaging.
This process means the quality of finished products can be fully monitored.
