1. Will the colours stay if I wash it?
- Yes, natural dyes have been used for centuries and are safe to wash. They are not as resistant as synthetic dyes and may fade a little over the washes, but this is all part of their beauty.
2. How do I wash natural dyes?
- It is recommended to use a mild soap (baby soap) and cold water and to avoid prolong expositions under direct sun (don't leave it on the clothes line for 10 days!).
I started sewing at 4 years old and have never stop since then. Sewing is a real passion for me, it’s like paying an instrument for a musician. I do it all the time!
After a career in the fashion industry as a designer, manufacturer and teacher, I ended up in the e-commerce industry. But my passion for sewing was so strong, that I kept coming back to it all the time, and now I do it full time.
When my son started to need costumes for Halloween, I was thrilled to create him whatever costume he wanted. But I was always worried he would get cold. On the streets of Montreal, Quebec, it can be cold on October 31st! So I started making him warm costumes and all the parents were asking me where I have found my son's costume.
My Eco-conscious mind was demanding me to change and improve my costume business to align with my values of sustainability. After many months of thoughts and prototyping, I have launched a new collection of clothing for little ones made in the “slow-fashion” manner. I wanted to make it as green as possible so that’s why I decided to use only natural dyes and organic cotton.
I still make costumes but realized that the best public for eco-friendly products was babies with their very sensitive skins.
I love working with natural fibers like cotton, silk and wool. I love how they feel, how they drape and how they smell! Synthetic fibers don’t react the same way, are not as fun and certainly don’t smell as natural. I think that for babies cotton is the best choice due to its softness and easy care.
Yes, I enjoy every step of the process. I do everything myself from dyeing the fabric, making the patterns, cutting and sewing the garments but sometimes I have a little help from my teenager to package the final product.
I am trying to bring back the love of handmade products and help people be more aware of the impact of their choices as consumers of goods. I believe that we should not lose the knowledge and craft of making clothing and fabrics like our ancestors were doing.
Nature is my biggest inspiration especially for the colours. I use the colours that are available in plants and if I can’t produce it naturally, well I won’t use it. For example, obtaining a true vibrant red is very difficult on cotton, so I won’t fight with Mother Nature about that and offer other beautiful colours that are easier to obtain in a natural way.
I also love animals and I think they can be so adorable, so my prints and motifs are mostly inspired by them. Especially the ones that live in my region, which is Quebec in Canada.
Yes, I am open to wholesalers who would like to have my products in their boutiques. I am on Etsy Wholesale if you would like to see my linesheet. Otherwise, please don't hesitate to contact me for wholesale inquiries.
