Established in 1997, NOTRE MONDE was conceived from artist Dawn Sweitzer’s idea of creating one-of-a-kind, functional objects inspired by travel, nature and the beautifully simple objects found in everyday life.
As the brand grew and demands increased, the year 2013 presented an opportunity for expansion in a partnership with Belgian home furnishing label Ethnicraft. The collaboration widened NOTRE MONDE’s reach in the global marketplace and brought opportunities to create exclusive designs for international retail partners.
Today, the NOTRE MONDE brand is recognized for its quality and distinctive aesthetics. Global patterns, textures and layers are translated onto our pieces with traditional printing and hand-finishing techniques. The exceptional process contributes to the unique quality and authenticity of each NOTRE MONDE piece.
Luxury and function.
