Make the world a little bit more colorful
Charlotte Hedeman-Guéniau and her husband Philippe founded RICE in 1998 with the desire to make the world a little more colorful. The two had lived in Paris for 15 years, had great jobs and had a good life, yet they felt the need to change something. They longed for a decelerated lifestyle and wanted to enjoy life more without having to give up new adventures.
Charlotte had discovered a beautiful, hand-made raffia raffia bag at a market in Thailand and came up with the idea to offer these colorful bags in some shops in Copenhagen. RICE was born. The bag is now one of the brand's best-selling products and is no longer the only product. The demand and interest in RICE was huge and the company flourished. The range was soon expanded to include melamine crockery, storage baskets, decorative items and other accessories. Over the years, the company has won many loyal customers in around 45 countries and, even twenty years after its founding, still wants to "give happiness a piece of color". And anyone who knows RICE knows that it works very well.
RICE and social responsibility
Since RICE was founded, the company has gone hand in hand with corporate social responsibility (CSR). Under the motto "Nobody can help everyone, but everyone can help someone", RICE always tries to do a little good in the world. On the one hand, the company is committed to fair working conditions and ethical standards in the production countries and sites, and on the other hand it supports social projects in developing countries, or projects that aim to support people in need.
