Jewelry and clothing accessories from K'Exprès
1102 Résidence La Marina
The small collaborative eco-solidarity workshops of the association K'exprès are small collaborative spaces where people of all generations and social classes meet on a voluntary basis to make different utilitarian or decorative products under the aegis of a craftsman, in a logic of sustainable development and promotion of the heritage of Guadeloupe.
These products are made from the valorization of a panel of plant materials not used or not consumed on the territory (bamboo, calabash, coconut, natural wood essence from Guadeloupe, driftwood, etc.), or by giving a second life to materials already recycled or to materials that appear as wastes in our daily life in order to participate in the protection of our environment (skin, horns and bones of cattle, building materials, metals taken from D3E wastes, used textiles, etc).
Thus, making or owning an item from the eco-solidary collaborative workshops of the K'exprès association is first of all highlighting a sustainable product that respects the environment, unique and/or in a limited series, both raw and refined, which does not lack character. It is then to participate in the preservation of the environment, in the promotion of the biodiversity of the archipelago of Guadeloupe and in the valorization of its knowledge and traditional know-how. Finally, it is to contribute in a different way because thanks to the funds coming from the sales, the association K'exprès implements each year its associative project dedicated to education and health in favor of minors living in Guadeloupe.
