What Does Méïzou means ?
Méïzou’s founder, Marine, was born and raised in beautiful Auvergne, a region nestled in the green heart of France : the Massif Central. The word Méïzou comes from an old local patois that used to be spoken there. Its literal translation would be “house” but it also conveys a sense of comfort, belonging and coziness. Of what makes us feel “at home”.
Méïzou’s logo is made of a typically French and familiar bird, the “mésange”, comfortably tucked in its nest.
When talking about her creative process Marine says “I love to create objects that we want to surround ourselves with because they feel comforting and bring us joy. Long lasting objects that can grow alongside us, and that if and when we outgrow them we keep a special and fond memory of.”
