Le café de maman
I’m Ellie and I welcome you here in this small creative place.
I am a sewist, artist and pattern designer, I make clothes and wall hangings, embroidery and pattern design collections deeply inspired by the calm of nature. Because there is something profound about plants. About nature. Something soothing and geniously unique.
Botanical design on a dress, robe or bedding, on art piece within a wall gallery, on armchair or wallpaper… offers such deep sense of style yet stillness. Pretty much everything I create is inspired by nature and the comfort it radiates.
Most days, when I sit down to create a piece of art or to make an artisan piece of fashion for somebody dear that visited our shop, I have an image in mind. It’s an image of a café.
A café with calm back yard filled with plants and trees, old chairs and cats walking around. One where they sell homemade cakes and muled wine in mismatched mugs. One where you can be yourself, and enjoy listening to aspiring musicians playing for you from an improvized small wooden stage in the corner. Where you let your little one play peacefully on a blanket. On a sunny day.
There are many gentle details around me which inspire the calming and nurturing vibe of my brand. Read more about ‘What inspires me’ HERE.
Welcome. Come and be creative with us or treat yourself to a piece of artwork for your home or wardrobe, deeply inspired by the calm of nature.
Le café de maman is..
Neutral oatmeal shades and french grey… silver charm… lavender blue… pearl and egg shell ivory… milk white and alpaca… scotch mist… winter mood.
Cozy and warm.
A place to come and relax and daydream.
Place to play and be inspired.
I am a mum like many others.
Some days overwhelmed with joy, some I better hide the bags under my eyes behind a book or a laptop screen. That’s called baby teething. Or toddler’s twos.
But I found how much can be soothed by nature and creativity.
I like to share what I love. And stay iNSPiRED & create.
Make things to treat others to.
Capturing little details and turning them into wearable art and pieces to make a home cozy and beautiful.
Little details and the feelings they bring.
Like the candlelight. And the look of a lit Christmas tree in a dark corner. Like the nature.
And my boy.
And our cat.
Welcome to our creative little place.
