AboutNew gestures for our planet
KT Home SA was created by Babette Keller Liechti, a woman entrepreneur known in particular for her great expertise in the field of microfiber. Through its sister company Keller Trading SA, it has been supplying the biggest luxury houses for 3 decades, particularly those active in the very demanding fields of fine Swiss watchmaking and jewellery.
Mother & grandmother convinced for a long time of the potential of microfiber and its applications in everyday life, she continues to develop ranges of new products that quickly prove to be essential. Innovative, practical, fun, but above all sustainable, in the face of a dramatic planetary ecological situation.
Babette reinvents banal everyday gestures in many contexts: with her line of water-based cleansing & make-up remover gloves, she de facto eliminates plastic bottles from make-up remover containers, as well as the pesticides used in cotton growing for making floppy disks. Just one of these small washable gloves has the power to eliminate more than 3,000 cotton pads and other make-up remover wipes, over a period of two years.
With regard to hygiene or its range of sanitary protection, its duo carbon fiber towel can be used for all the most thankless household tasks, with a single gesture simply with water. This towel has been designed to replace all toxic and harmful solvents for humans and our environment, in order to overcome all kinds of dirt, such as grease and limescale while eliminating the proliferation of bacteria.
Babette reinvents toxic solvents, under the name les Eaux du joaillier. Indeed, it was in contact with industry that she found that the liquids used for cleaning industrial or private precious metals were extremely toxic for users and for the environment. The jeweler's range of waters will take care of your jewelry by immersing it for 10 minutes in clear water like clear, non-toxic water. Your jewelry or other objects will regain their shine of the first days, while preserving your health and that of our sewers. Products entirely developed in Switzerland.
Each product is designed to meet four essential requirements: Efficiency, Durability, Excellence and Eco-responsibility. Faithful to the technique that made the reputation of his house; that of a product-neutral microfiber, only fiber.
But today, Babette wants to go even further and is working hard on fibers made from recycled polyester from bottles fished out of our oceans.
If she realizes that her glove can revolutionize the ritual of make-up removal for hundreds of millions of women around the world, by its ecological advantages, she is not insensitive to humanitarian causes and ardently wishes that her little gloves also become the wearer flag of the oppressed women and children of a small part of our planet who do not have the possibility of providing the necessary care for their children.
This is why she is working on the establishment of a global campaign in favor of Afghan Women, this with a humanitarian partner on the ground and carefully selected, with the aim of allowing all women to participate in the support and setting up medical structures to help them.
There are only women, to help women! If the environment is an urgent priority according to Babette, respect for women and children is the one she wishes to bequeath to her children and grandchildren.
“New gestures for our planet”.
This is how she formulates her mission.
