like minded entrepreneurs to share on ethical business models, suppliers and high end clients/boutiques around the world
About me / About business or organisation:
Madeleine Lepage creates exclusive accessories to be treasured through generations.Each piece celebrates the uniqueness of handmade art.
Géraldine Fourmon launched Madeleine Lepage in 2013 and named it after her great grand-mother who used to live in Indochina in the 1920's, and who transformed Parisian lace and embroidery from old outfits into new gowns for the French ladies of Saigon.
In line with this legacy, the Madeleine Lepage brand offers a range of accessories that celebrates the originality and the poetry of handmade art, with a special focus on hand embroidery.
Destined to be shared with future generations, each piece is crafted in collaboration with the most skilled hand embroidery workshops across India, often requiring several days of work and long hours of adjustments.
The Madeleine Lepage collections are timeless and not seasonal. Intimate, each collection is enriching the spectrum of products of the brand and is designed as a refined balance between contemporary conceptual designs and ancestral handwork heritage.
Career history / Company history:
I have worked as an architect and an interior desinger for 10 years on high end projects all over the worls, mainly from London. Now based in Paris, I have launched Madeleine Lepage in 2013.

I think we have some things in common. I have also just embarked on a venture with a couple other talented and motivated individuals designing special "t-shirts" of course with eco-friendly material. I live in Paris and I am not sure where you are based, however my business partner and I will be in London on the 20 and 21st November for the Ethical Fair and I would love to meet you to discuss more. We are seeking the possibility to having embroidery done on the t shirts..I look forwards to hearing from you soon.
I read your notice re your startup business and I would love to get involved. I am fashion and textiles graduate looking for more involvement in ethical textiles projects and having spent a month in India in September this idea really interests me. I would love to hear more about your venture so please get in touch.
You can buy them direct from helptraders.com or bamboofabricstore.com.au
I have taken off the customs charges that would be incurred and some of the shipping
SO if you wanted to buy a bit to test out your idea it would be a cheaper option for you but know that to buy it bulk from this site will have customs charges attached to it.
You can also look at them online to see how they look and note that they come up in natural options only ready to dye
Let me know your thoughts if interested in any,
It was great seeing you on the ethical Forum. This is Anjali Schiavina from creative art of souls Pondicherry. I am excited to start working on your collection and looking forward to your visit to our atelier.
