Margause is a friend, inspiration & the first in our series of interviews.
Growing up in Biarritz, South West France, she has an innate connection to her surroundings & appreciates the natural world.
Always looking to learn form her experiences & the people she meets, we spent a morning at the Cote de Basque learning about Margause philosophy on success, her inspirations & her views
What do you do?
I am a free surfer since the age of 10 & I develop multi-creative exercises to teach myself the things I want to learn. I concentrate on what will satisfy me.
What drives you to succeed?
Belief & diversity.
What does sustainability mean to you?
It's a constant way of living. I wear mostly clothes found at flea markets & furnish my home in vintage pieces. I have a thing for worn stuff - their soul, their uniqueness.
How do you include sustainability in your work?
I hope the things I'm involved in now have impact later on. We do not need to innovate for pleasure, innovation needs to focus ecological or health issues.
How do you recharge?
I try to culture myself, I love to do nothing & mediate in silence. Be alone is very important to me. I live by the ocean & surfing is definitely a way to recharge & rest my mind.
What is your greatest success?
I think success is immaterial & it's important to remember that. Having my freedom, the ability to try new things & cultivating an open mind set can be defined as my success.
