After working for almost 10 years in advertising and fashion, French art director Séverine Monsonégo launched her own brand. Her sustainable line of housewares uses organic cotton, water-based inks, and recycled paper, all handmade in France in the traditional way. Her graphic, playful designs are brought to life in an atelier in the Paris suburbs.
Bored by law school, Severine enrolled in art school and never looked back! After 10 years working for an agency, she realized her dream of returning to physically creating objects by hand when she founded Oelwein. She is inspired by books, travel and escaping the familiarity of daily life.
