The Projects Collective is Fiji's home for ethical artisans!
... where we infused beautiful thoughtful brands, with coffee, cocktails & craft beer!
The Projects opened in June 2016, as a collaborative side-hustle by us ...
Matisse comes from a campaigning background (she was Greenpeace's head of the Pacific region) & Laura comes from a retail design / construction background (working for big brands like Billabong, Surf , Dive N Ski & Tigerlily) . Eventually, these powers combined, led us to setting up the coolest / craziest shop & co-working space in Fiji !!
We knew we had some legendary artisans across the Pacific, who just needed a platform to be able to sell. We wanted to help get their epic products and stories out there. We also knew we needed to have a fun shop, a place of creation ... but also something to be proud of.
So it was natural for the progression of The Projects Collective Fiji to incorporate ethical practises, because honestly ... who has the energy to start any other sort of business these days ??
Matisse now also runs our sister business The Projects Creative, where she builds brand & campaign strategies for other small businesses, projects, or side-hustles.
