SUSTAINABILITY

Atelier 22B is committed to having a positive and significant societal and environmental impact through the construction of an ethical, transparent and fair value chain.

As a company with a purpose-driven company, our approach revolves around 3 axes:

USING ECO-DESIGN

To create well-thought-out, audacious, quality design objects, always at a fair price. Our products are made to last beyond codes and fashions, respecting people and the planet throughout their life cycle.

GETTING SOCIALLY AND LOCALLY INVOLVED

1. Working for women

Support women's entrepreneurship by rewarding craftswomen through fair remuneration, and offer them a favorable environment for local creation to limit rural exodus and improve their status.

2. Promoting an open, inclusive and supportive society

To support and collaborate, in Africa and in France wherever possible, with establishments dedicated to the social and professional integration of people with disabilities.

NURTURING TALENT AND PROMOTING KNOW-HOW

Celebrate African references by supporting creation in innovative ways, without betraying or appropriating the culture.

Our ambition is to perpetuate a professional and virtuous craft industry capable of meeting international demands; we encourage innovation and adaptation of the offer, while promoting the training of our partners through the exchange of experience with experts.

OUR STORY

The founder

Originally from France and Senegal, Violaine Beh has traveled around forty countries in search of human connections, cultural experiences, and artisanal expertise.

Having navigated within various major international corporations such as KPMG, LVMH, and Technip FMC, where she honed a strong expertise and conquered numerous challenges, Violaine embarked on a path of realignment between personal values and professional pursuits. This was aimed at unleashing her talent for design, her infectious energy, and her creativity in service of women's empowerment, social inclusion, beauty, and authenticity.

Championing a compelling vision and ambition that inspire interest and enthusiasm, in 2023, Violaine Beh takes the leap and establishes Atelier 22B.

She envisioned the inaugural collection, quickly capturing attention with the minimalist and distinctive essence of African design. Since then, she continues to rally around the Atelier 22B project, fostering an ecosystem of stakeholders poised to shake up the industry with original and authentic pieces that resonate with our lifestyles, all while unwaveringly upholding a commitment to a desirable future."
