At House Raccoon, we are strongly committed to the local and global society. We believe in entrepreneurship not only to make our own world better and more enjoyable but also for people/living things in general. We do this with our initiative in which we plant one tree per product with the nonprofit organisation Trees for the Future. But also, when we couldn’t follow our own production anymore, it was super logic to search for a social partner on the production side.
The social workplace Mivas was the perfect match. Just like us, at Mivas they believe in people. People who would normally get the label ‘handicapped’ or ‘with a limitation’ and in society not always get the chances they deserve. Together with Mivas, we look at the beautiful side of each person, we choose 100% for the label ‘talented’ and we strive to make everyone a real artist who, each with their own input, stands at the cradle of 100% Belgian design! Every piece is a unique handmade addition to your home as there are no two objects the same.
Very concrete, this means that all our products are made ánd packed by the wonderful people at Mivas. So except for the molds (we use advanced techniques to create our very own high-quality molds for complete creative freedom), the people at Mivas are handling every production aspect. From really easy things like sticking the protective bumper pads to the bottom of our products, up to the real craftsmanship of pouring and shaping our gypsum composite products. This way, every time you buy a House Raccoon piece, you will get the joyful feeling that you made the world both greener ánd more social. And unless you hate the colour green or are antisocial, we are sure that the story of how every House Raccoon product was made makes your smile go a little wider, your heart go a little warmer and your pupils go a little wider every time you look at your unique House Raccoon piece!
