« We are the bees of the invisible.
We wildly collect the honey of the visible
to store it in the great golden hive of the invisible. »
Maria Rainer Rilke
Reconnecting with the roots of luxury by choosing to follow the highly demanding path of great craftsmanships.
Drawing inspiration from the worker bees’ unfading discipline, whose art is metamorphosis
Rigorously selecting master craftsmen whose skills are exceptional.
Preserving our increasingly rare cultural heritages and nurturing them with a progressive artistic vision.
Offering an exclusive, high hand, responsible and solidarity-based collection, as an alternative to usual widely distributed luxury brands.
Maison Rucher lays its foundation there, at the crossroads of outstanding creative crafts whose future deserves our dedication.
After more than 20 years dedicated to the world of Couture and Créateurs de Mode in Paris, Christophe Campagnola learns about the
magic of beekeeping in a small southern France training apiary and settles his Maison in Provence.
Listening to the singing of the queens which announces the swarming of the colony, he starts wondering about the bees living standards and the Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD)
affecting the bees worldwide, threatening by the way the planet global environmental (and economical) balance.
As an urgent necessity, he decides to dedicate his expertise of both creation and luxury universes to the foundation of MAISON RUCHER focusing his skills on 3 products categories :
honeys, candles, ready-to-wear and accessories.
The honeys are french cru sourced with precise floral and geographic origins.
They are harvested by responsible apiarists and packaged in glass jars with handmade turned wood lids.
The hive frame's honey comb wax candles are handmade and enhanced under glass bells mouth blown by Italian master glass artists.
The inner jackets are cut in wool and cashmere to tie which is woven in a traditional southern France weaving workshop and then fashioned
in a workshop adjacent to it, whose know-how is faultless.
The jewellery Bees which adorn here and there some items of the collection are made from metal, precious at time, and are manufactured
by a southern French master smelter who works exclusively withrecycled metals.
