Michel Québatte
Basket maker
Montagny-près-Yverdon

« There are 120 different kinds of rattan but you can only use between 20 and 25 to make chairs or baskets. »

About

Michel Québatte is one of the few people to make a living from basketry in the canton of Vaud. Originally from the region and an electrician by training, he discovered basketry at school and through old manuals before going to Fayl-Billot, the capital of French basketry. He is the first Swiss to become a dignitary of the French Brotherhood of Noble Osier Shapers.

« We all have to look after the image of our profession. You have to arouse interest, show that basketry, in addition to being rock-solid, is an art. »

Michel Québatte creates personal works or works to order. He also repairs, transforms and restores old and contemporary wicker and rattan objects. He collaborates with the ECAL in particular for a carbon fiber bassinet. In addition, Michel Québatte offers a wide range of training courses for children and adults.
