At Saudade Collective, we endeavour to operate in an ethically and durable manner. Our philosophy focuses on preserving (traditional) craftsmanship in harmony with nature. In craftsmanship we see an important counterpoint, for what modern industrialization does for work and consumption. We team up with local and international artisans to create and curate beautiful handmade homeware.

In order to make you understand the journey of your homeware, we believe in the necessity of transparency and traceability. That’s why we don’t support factory-made mass production. We built Saudade from the ground up, working directly with every step of our supply chain.

Our Saudade collections are not seasonal but made to last a lifetime. We continuously challenge ourselves to find new ways to add better value to the process. In this endeavour let us be bold, let us be brave and let us be together.

Our Saudade collections are not seasonal but made to last a lifetime. Timeless in design and faithful to a sustainable view of life. From revived materials to the eco-friendly packaging made from biodegradable materials.

Grondstoffen & materialen

We focus on the use of recycled, revived or up-cycled materials, giving new meaning and purpose to existing precious materials. We consider it to be a reminder of our roots; to work with these materials that were once created by nature. When using new materials, we opt for bio based materials. Furthermore, we the analyse existing work processes within our Collective. In order to discuss and implement ways of improvement and sustainable work practices.

Duurzame impact

exclusive. In fact, it is the combination of the three that can be truly magical. With our collections, ignorance may give way to a deeper awareness of the journey each item takes before it becomes yours. To us the Saudade journey starts with the makers and the materials. The all-important craftsmanship humanizes consumption of the responsibly-made as opposed to mass production in the industrial process.
