About Us

What is Trouvaille?
We are a company from London (United Kingdom) founded by a couple of globetrotters who design original gifts inspired by our love for travel and nature.

What does 'Trouvaille' actually mean?
1. A chance encounter with something wonderful; a lucky find.
2. Something considered interesting or exceptional, discovered accidentally or not.
3. The act of discovering something with an effort of the mind or the imagination, or thanks to a lucky inspiration.

Is Trouvaille secure?
You don't have to worry about a thing. We handle all the data you provide securely. Our payments are processed by world-leading payment gateways PayPal and Square. For detailed information please see our Privacy Policy.

Our Products

How does it work?
You can find the instructions about how to colour in our products on the side of the packaging (or on the back of the flap for the mugs that still have old packaging, like the UK Explorer mug):


1. Colour in all the countries/states/national parks you've been to or you plan to visit or the constellations you spot.
2. Leave to dry for 15 minutes.
3. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes at 160°C/320°F.
4. Ready to use! Your mug is now microwave and dishwasher safe.

Tote bag:

1. Colour in all the countries/states/national parks you've been to or you plan to visit or the books you have read.
2. Leave to dry for 15 minutes.
3. Iron the bag inside out without steam.
4. Ready to use! You can wash your bag in the washing machine at 40°C/104°F max.

You can repeat the process every time you visit a new country/state/national park!

How many products do you have?
We are a small company and in 2018 we started with just three models of our colour-in mug. We are constantly working on new designs. Stay tuned not to miss any of them!

UPDATE: Since launching the mugs and the world tote, we have designed new amazing products for all travel lovers like us! There is a very special travel journal, a new version of the tote with a USA map, a super fun colouring book and a UK mug. In 2021, we launched our line of Save The Planet candles that have so far helped protect over 10 hectares of threatened habitats around the world.

Why can't I choose the colour of my pen?
Most of our colour-in mugs come as a set with a green pen as that is the colour that normally represents the Earth. Our Road Trip and Stargazing mugs come with a blue pen. However, you can buy other colours or a pen set to make your mug or tote bag as colourful as you like!

Why does my country/the country I have been to not appear?
We know! We have been to places like Mauritius, Barbados or Antarctica that are not on the map... We strive to include all the countries on the map as accurately as possible. However, some small countries and islands are not included because, instead of printing a black dot, we preferred to let you add it with your pen!


Payment, Shipping and Returns

Why am I charged in GBP and not USD or EUR despite selecting USD or EUR?
All orders are charged in Pound Sterling (GBP) and any quotes shown on the website in US Dollars and Euros are for orientation only and are approximate value converted from GBP based on current market exchange rates for USD and EUR (subject to quarterly updates). As all orders are charged in GBP, your card provider may charge their own exchange rate where currency rate differs from our approximate values provided on the website. 

How will my product be packed?
We are determined to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible. All our shipments are sent in recycled cartons, but do not worry, your product inside will be securely packed exactly like on the images, in our original Trouvaille box. We use paper fillers and planet-friendly gift wrapping to reduce waste as much as possible.

Do you ship to my country?
Our products can be shipped worldwide. However, please note that the price quoted at checkout includes products and shipping and excludes local import taxes and duties. Your government may require you to settle them before the shipment can be released from customs and delivered.

*PLEASE NOTE: As a result of Brexit, any purchase from the EU may be subject to VAT and custom fees which will be your responsibility.

We will let you know an estimated delivery time at the checkout according to your selected shipping method.
