(Version française en 2nd partie)
First of all, thank you for taking the time to read this blog and browse the eshop.
I am Anissa, a French designer (English is not my first language so I apologize in advance for some translation errors) who has recently jumped into the world of entrepreneurship by creating her own small leather handbag business.
Passionate about sewing since my childhood, I am a self taught and I improved my sewing skills by making my wardrobe.
I buy a few clothes and my daily outfits are mainly composed of at least one garment made by me.
The beauty of the seam lies in the uniqueness of a handmade piece.
It also helps me to realize that sewing a piece can take times and is not as simple as it may look. So imagine the little hands in developing countries who spend their whole day, from an early age, exploited by big brands, and sew garment in exchange for a few coins ...
Exit the fast fashion (very frequent renewal of clothes which leads to overconsumption and monumental waste when unsold) and let's support slow fashion (a more thoughtful consumption, quality products designed to last over time, ...).
Sewing my wardrobe has truly opened my eyes and I want to educate customers to buy less but quality garment.
I will dedicate a special post about FAST FASHION vs SLOW FASHION.
In this blog, I will also post about sewing, fashion, entrepreneurship but also deafness, topic little known to the public because as you may know (or not), I have a moderate hearing loss (there are 4 different degrees of deafness: mild, moderate, severe and profound) and I wear hearing devices paired; it is a particularity that I belatedly accepted but that I now fully assume since a few years.
If you have questions, suggestions or information, do not hesitate to leave a comment, I will be more than happy to read you!
Talk to you soon!
