The idea was to create utilitarian and sustainable accessories for everyday life. She draws and produces the vegetable tanned leather accessories.
Quality over quantity is her watchword. This is why she choses to use vegetable tanned leather free of chemical products.
“Slow made” is part of the slow movement that encourages designers to take their time to create. In order to make our creations more traditional, we finish our products by hand with great care. Most of the time, the industrial production neglects the creativity and the quality of the product. The “slow made” philosophy requires research, a thoughtful creation process, the use of sustainable materials, as well as the creation and the fabrication of innovative objects and a timeless product.
“Slow made” and “slow economy” come together. This new philosophy redefines the production, which is quality over quantity. The design of each product is meticulously thought and researched in order to create a sustainable product that is useful everyday. We believe that consumption of goods should be well thought and responsible.
Treatment of the Products
We recommend applying wax on your leather goods from time to time; this will help the leather keep its softness and flexibility (you can find a wax at a shoe repairer shop).
Every product is made in Montreal, our hometown. We encourage local consumption.
