TIMELESS OBJECTS FOR THE EVERYDAY LIFE
TRADITION MEETS MODERNITY
Octopus draws from the past to offer modern, durable objects for the present time. Our inspiration comes from the sea and the American and Breton cultures. Whether we’re looking to find shapes,
materials, patterns, know-how, we want the objects we make to convey meaning. That’s why even when they are brand new, our products are already infused with history.
are using solid, premium traditional materials.
Selvedge canvas: woven on old restored looms, this canvas is characterized by its raw edges and a weaving so tight that it’s waterproof. Over time, the stiff canvas obtains a patina, gets a little creased, takes on a darker shade and becomes more supple, just like an old pair of jeans.
Wool broadcloth: soft, warm and naturally waterproof fabric, used to make the Breton “Kabigs” and French Navy uniforms.
materials are produced in France and Portugal in handicraft workshops and in EPVs (“Entreprises Patrimoine Vivant”, companies that have been certified for
promoting France’s living heritage).
