Born in North Africa in the 60's, Anne studied at the famous Ecole des Beaux Arts de Paris in the 80's and jet setted beetween France, Italy and Morroco in the 90's, while designing for Tod's, Cacharel and Ursule Beaugeste, her own collection of luxurious bohemian bags.
Dividing then her time between France, Italy, and Morocco, she finally decided to focus on her passion for handmade design and started in 2012 to collaborate with Indian artisans in an effort to preserve their singular skill as well as to redefine simple sophistication.
She designed a basic zip pouch, light and practical, embellished with patterned designs entirely embroidered by hand, that makes it a timeless accessory essential to every good wardrobe.
Using a traditional Beauvais stitch, the embroiderer is seated bending over the loom during up to 30 hours. The small hook needle jumps from one stitch to another and the beauty of the design slowly appears under his hand. The “fait main” creates tiny accidents, that only enhance the beauty of the pouch, making it one of a kind.
