Ekhi Busquet Les Estampillés

Meeting with Ekhi Busquet, smuggler designer

Start

Here's one more meeting, among those we won't forget: we're in the workshop of the Les Estampillés brand, THE "design brand for characters we don't smoke!" Here, a brand that says what #39 does and does what #39 says... It creates short editions and unique textile pieces, marked by the human values of its creator, Ekhi Busquet.

Ekhi is a designer and claims it. After six years at l'studies at l'Ecole Boulle de Paris, then at l'Ecole Polytechnique de Milan, she obtained her diploma in Product Design and Architecture from l'interiors in 2010 (with the jury's congratulations) for her project "Design of l'humanist company", a Master's degree carried out in partnership with EmmausDefi. 

An atypical profile such as hers could only attract prestigious brands such as L'Oréal where she will be hired as Furniture Designer for the Group's strategic brand, Lancôme. Two years later, having honed her creative approach and articulated even more character to projects as a whole, the prestigious House of Dior recruited her in turn.
Here it is propelled in two years Senior Designer with the responsibility of d' a team of creative people. Here, Ekhi develops her sense of rigor, perfection and creative demands in a culture with high identity and strategic stakes.
A passionate adventure to refine the thinking initiated during her studies: combining economic objectives and human purpose.
 
A journey between two worlds
 
C'was inevitable: Les Estampillés are born in 2015 from this beautiful relationship between creativity and entrepreneurship. The concept of the creative studio is developed in a model of research and associative entrepreneurship, notably with l'ESAT of Ménilmontant. Why? The approach is first and foremost ethical, then economic.
Ekhi thus feels that it is an actor of the social and solidarity economy: it can combine tailor-made services with unique works, while being accompanied by rigorous professional advice and a certain specificity that the Ménilmontant ESAT enjoys: originality and creativity.
Thus, Les Estampillés can lay claim to the manufacture of socially innovative objects and help to encourage young French creation to understand what, from a human point of view, lies behind the creative effects: each designer proposes his own creative process and degree of commitment, provided that it is a vector of innovation and generates a quantifiable social impact.
