Yume is an incredible Copenhagen shop that believes firmly in environmentally and socially responsible design.
Everything they carry has either been handmade, has recycled content, is up cycled, water based inks, vegetable tanned leathers, trees are planted to offset the impact on the climate and many other things. It’s incredible the work they have managed to source.
Not only is everything responsible but it’s also beautiful. Piece after piece is beautifully crafted and detailed. Ceramics have stunning colours, wood work and leather pieces are incredibly well constructed and children’s pieces are lovely and fun.
Yume gives back 10% of their profit to an NGO so that designers, artists and artisans can be helped out to continue their craft and continue to create beautiful work that Yume can sell. I’m so happy to have discovered a shop such as Yume that is out there doing so many amazing things both for the art and design worlds but also for the planet as a whole.
