Of course, the crib had to meet current safety requirements and although it is also mandatory, she thinks that is very important. What she found was that applying these strict measures became a very difficult and time-consuming process. The model of the crib had to be changed significantly to meet the strict requirements and this took away the charm of the crib. She decided to leave the cradle for what it was.
She really wanted to have the other interior accessories produced and so she decided to continue. It would be a shame if she didn't release the items in a collection. With a number of beautiful, international brands already on the market, she also noticed that there was a desire for innovation. A new label. More choice for consumers. A renewed collection with its own style. And so it happened.
Design and collection
She designs all items herself and is produced by factories in India and Indonesia, with whom she has a good cooperation. The items are largely handmade and are refined, contemporary, unique and have a vintage look.
What is great is that the Meri-Lou collection can be combined well with various modern interior styling and can be placed in all rooms of the house.
Production and environmentMeri-Lou's items are handmade by the local adult population from the factories in countries where our presence can make a difference.
The employment that Meri-Lou provides in the production of the articles provides food for many families. To minimize emissions to the environment, Meri-Lou ensures that the items are shipped from the factory in one shipment as much as possible. Meri-Lou tries to avoid plastic packaging and prefers to use paper and cardboard to protect our beloved environment.
