The lady with the refined hand.....
Inspired by a passionate mother with real craft skills and a grandmother, an art collector, mainly from Central Africa, whose stylish clothing fell into art thanks to her choice and harmony of colors and accessories, Fatyly absorbed these influences to forge the design of her creative journey.
An adept of "learning by doing", she values craftsmanship and becomes passionate about ceramics in the late 90s. One approach that became a reality in 2001 with the opening of a craft gallery in Dakar thanks to the collaboration of West African artisans; a period that heralded the beginnings of the Fatyly brand, which then offered utilitarian, decorative objects, inspired for the most part by museum pieces. Her collaboration with Diénébou Zon, a potter from Bobo-Dioulasso allowed her to work culinary and decorative forms; Bobo-Dioulasso was a real laboratory for the ceramicist.
In 2008, she joined Central Saint Martins where she benefited from the synergy between the technical knowledge of industrial ceramics and her cultural heritage. The school becomes a kind of Pandora's box with its various specialties, visits to English factories and professionals from the design world. Fatyly embarked on the world of gastronomy and creates tasting vessels for chocolate and tea with the collaboration of two London’s chocolatiers and a cocoa and chocolate expert from Paris; she thus marked her entry in the tableware industry.
Today Fatyly is a luxury brand whose vision is to bring authentic products. The designer uses strong visual accents on table services to tell the contemporary story of an African heritage. Fatyly evokes the fantasy of table services that are surely to surprise and challenge the standards of the tableware industry.
