Q de bouteilles is a family business created in 2016 in Le Touquet. The brand designs everyday objects from recycled bottles. Glasses, vases, candles are available in pretty colors and original formats bringing a breath of fresh air to our tables and our interiors. A success story made in Hauts-de-France which now has two coffee shops and around twenty employees.
Like any project, Q debouteilles was born from an idea. It was during an evening with friends that Gauthier Decarne decided to cut a bottle in half to make a glass. The project could have stopped there, but after some training and investment, Q debouteilles has become a flourishing brand. The story is clear and almost obvious. Accompanied by his wife Victoire, Gauthier brilliantly runs his small business based in his native Baie de Somme. And more than a simple entrepreneurial project, Q debouteilles tells a real story and shares the values of its creators: affection, respect, simplicity and harmony.
Transform without distorting, such is the objective that the couple has set itself. From the raw material collected via various sources of supply, glass craftsmen sort, cut, carve and shape the future containers. The glass bottles thus offer themselves a new life and become other everyday objects; they retain their original function but in a new form. Thus glasses, vases, egg cups, boards and candles come out of the Touquettois workshop in their impeccable packaging, and come to rejuvenate and embellish the tables of restaurateurs and households.
"Translucent, both fragile and solid, the bottle is elementary and functional. Neither time, nor fashion, nor even its industrialization have succeeded in transforming the object."
The creations of Q de Bouteilles give a real boost to the art of the table! Both classic in its history but contemporary in its form, each object derives its strength and uniqueness from being both old and modern at the same time. For example, the brand's glasses perfectly accessorize all table settings by balancing styles; they bring a design touch to traditional dressings while they make refined tables a bit more rustic. A perfect connection between the past and the future.
Gauthier and Victoire have succeeded in transforming an emblematic object of French culture into a classic of tomorrow, while respecting the environmental and aesthetic constraints of our time. It's simple and obvious but you had to think about it!
