EcoEtsy shop member Armelle of Pure Pixie creates her wonderful eco-friendly clothing and accessories lines in a small village in western France.
Armelle says ” I learned to sew as a kid from my mom and grandma, both of whom are professional seamstresses. We used to make clothing from scratch or alter them to fit size and taste, so once I became a mom, it was natural for me to sew clothing for my babies. When I couldn’t find a nice, truly-organic sleep sack, I decided to sew my own. My mom loved how it turned out and urged me to start a business. I was already an Etsy customer, so I decided to give it a try. It was such a surprise when I got my first order after only a few weeks – I was so thrilled! Since then, I’ve added a lot of different items to my shop, like bathrobes, dresses, bibs, placemats, newsboy caps, and facial pads.”
I purchased one of Armelle’s amazing child’s placemats and it was beautiful, incredibly well-made, shipped quickly and a huge hit! They are perfect for a summer picnic and available at Pure Pixie along with her other wonderful handmade clothing and accessories.
Here is a peek into her studio and process.
