From their country house, the concept was born. Inspired by every childhood memories and family treasures Jacinthe had, she offered Marie-Claude to dive into the adventure with her. While one is inspired by the work of her knitter’s mother, the other has mastered the art for detail and aesthetics. They know the value of a well-made product, and above all the wealth behind the expertise of arts and crafts.
