I am Amandine, a French designer-maker living in Madrid.Fleur de Carotte means 'carrot flower' in French. I chose this name many years ago as I love the fragile beauty and freedom of these meadow flowers. I thought it encapsulated both my aesthetic inspired by the wildlife and quirkiness.
Fleur de Carotte started from a life event in 2013 which I first saw as awful and which happened to be one of the best blessings in disguise of my life! I unfairly lost a job I put all my heart into for a year and then decided to work for myself, do what I love the most - create and make ceramic jewellery and objects which add beauty to your everyday life - and never make a sacrifice for something which is not dear to my heart.The brand lived its first years in Brighton, UK, and after a two year break due to life changes and time spent in South America, Fleur de Carotte evolved and started a new life in Madrid.
