The story behind it:

In 2006, the Frenchwoman Laetitia Charachon founded the small and fine label “Platane” in Shanghai’s historic district “French Consession”. The namesake was given by the many French plane trees, hundreds of which were brought to Shanghai in the 19th century and which still shade the small streets in the center of Shanghai. If the plane trees were the godparents for the name, the charming fusion spirit of the district is inspiring the home ware collection of Platane: traditional Chinese craftsmanship combines with international design.
Thus, Platane has launched its own completely handmade and / or hand-painted ceramic series. Among them, the “Flowery” tableware  which comes in three colours (blue, red and green) displaying Chinese / Japanese symbols on white hot-fired ceramic: the fish represents wealth; the peony is considered an omen of happiness and a symbol of love; the plum blossom symbolizes bravery and steadfastness, as the plum and cherry blossoms are the first to defy winter and bloom.
Later on, the marble and jade artifacts joined the collection, exclusively designed for Platane in collaboration with Chinese artisans.
The “blue and white” porcelain, which has a very long tradition in China, also found a new interpretation at Platane‘s.
Since 2016, Platane has been part of the French Fremaux Delorme Group  and is run there as a subsidiary brand for tableware and accessories.
