I make unique upcycled creations from French vintage tapestries. When I studied fashion design in France, I loved to rework existing material to create something new and unique. So, naturally, I launched my brand with the idea of giving a second life to fabrics with a background story. 

Each piece I make is completely unique. I love the creative process of finding the perfect match between the different washes of the denim jackets and the colourful tapestries. As a kid, I was surrounded by stage costumes and old fabrics – I was always making stuff. I launched my brand in 2015 with the idea of creating products that would be original and timeless.
