Owner Name: Becky & Elaine Brisker
Year Started: 2009
Objet Adapté was founded on the premise of the literal English translation of its name – "Adapted Objects". Almost all material used to construct their products are recycled - taking bits and parts of clothing, accessories, and vintage items to make current, fashionable items that are one of a kind. Mother and daughter make up the design and production team, each with great focus, experience and training in design and construction. In 2013, they launched Adapted Objects, a bridge line focusing mainly on original art tee shirts. As much as possible they source super soft tri-blends, eco-blends and US made garments to screen print. All of their designs are printed locally in Columbus, OH. We interviewed Becky to learn more about Object Adapté!
Can you tell us more about your business?
Objet Adapté launched in 2009 selling vintage feed sack messengers, totes and hobo bags. In 2013 we launched our tee line using all Alternative Apparel eco blend garments. Now we make bags, pillows, picnic blankets, adult and, children tees and starting this year, some women's apparel.
What aspect of your business makes you proud?
My mom and I love the opportunity to work together. We both have great experience and expertise in different areas - we're a perfect compliment. I also love that we are able to find and (re)use so much recycled and US made product to.
Is your business involved in any charity work in the local community?
We donate product to many different fundraiser and charitable events, but not one charity in particular.
