ABOUT

LECHAPERON, your companion

Do you look for more than meets the eye? Do you see beyond seasons and trends?

Then you have come to the right place. LECHAPERON is a slow shopping platform in a fast moving world. An online gallery of everyday objects, exclusively designed by dedicated makers to treat yourself, your interior or someone you care about. Yes, we sell products. But not just to anything. When you buy at LECHAPERON, you are invited to meet the unique person behind our exclusive objects. After all: each product reveals something about its maker. Just like it unveils something about its buyer. That’s what LECHAPERON is about. About people. Unique people. People like yourself.

LECHAPERON is a ‘slow shopping’ initiative offering timeless and sustainable everyday objects. ‘Timeless’ because they transcend seasons and trends. ‘Sustainable’ because they can go a long way with you. During your visit, we like to tell you more about the makers and their exclusive designs for LECHAPERONunlimited (art, fashion, interior) through stories and portraits. By getting to know the makers behind the products you buy, you do not only use what they make. You also take their story with you…

When the world tells you to speed up, I hope LECHAPERON can help you to slow down…

Welcome! Vicky x


About the makers

lotte-martens-schort-e1475507507705

It is our aim to introduce a beauty loving public to makers from different disciplines. Makers who are already well established names within their field, while others are still emerging and very promising within the domain of Art & Illustration, Fashion Accessories and Interior Design. Each product tells something about the maker and leads us to his or her personal life. We are curious to know how people do what they do and especially why.

About the products

Every product is the result of a close collaboration between the maker and LECHAPERONunlimited. Beauty, high quality, sustainability and timelessness are key in our search. Products with an identity, which makes them recognizable and therefore unique.


Are you a maker? Would you like us to help tell your story? Would you like to give us the opportunity to sell a limited set of exclusive products through this online platform? We’ll Increase your brand visibility and support the communication on who you are and what you do.

I am Vicky and founded LECHAPERONunlimited.com as an online initiative in 2015, although the idea of the project was established in 2014 during a walk in the Ardèche (France).
