My name is Jenny Eve .
I'm an independent  Textile Artisan , Couturier .



I have my own style, my character, I don't make garments "fashionable", I prefer to think "timeless".
A part of my work is to create on vintage Japanese jackets Haori and Michiyuki from the first half of the 20th Century, to give to them another new life .




All garments and accessories are made and photographed by me .
Most of them are hand-stitched, hand-embroidered, without mechanical sewing, because I don't like using the sewing machine so much, but sometimes it is necessary.



Wool arrival , they are like candies for me !



I think the hand-sewed and hand embroidered works are more decorative. It takes much longer time, but the result is delicate, with soul. To sew , to embroider by hand is a tactile meeting between me, the textures and my creations. It can be as a sort of meditation too, the mind travels, the work grows slowly with maturity during its process.



I admire the hand made work by generations of women
which preceded us ,
I love the poetry and the imperfections found in this work.
I continue this tradition.




I love beautiful old materials ,when they were handmade and high quality .
They inspire me , I collect and use them in my creations .
To create new garments and accessories with old materials,
is to give them a second ,
a new and different life,
to bring them out of oblivion.
And it is a way to recycle , which is something important !



Silks embroidered, velvets, organzas, beads, ornaments ....... all had previous life 
before coming to my hands.
They have the beautiful quality and patina from the past, 
precious value that we don't find in the mass produced new materials.










I'm passionate by the ethnic costume history in all the world ,
I collect books , fabrics , garments ,
my life atmosphere is full of them ,



I love flowers and plants , and I try to create a garden in the apartment where I live .
All these things are source of inspiration.



" Art and Beauty make our existences bearable"
I built a cocoon work life atmosphere around me ,
to be able to create for my kind customers all around the world garments and accessories, trying to share with them some dreams coming from my head , made with my hands and ... with my heart.



With humor , I play to be model in my creations ....to show that a small woman like me
( I'm 1,59 cm / 5'2" ) can wear my garments.
I absolutely don't create for gigantic top models wearing xxs sizes because they are not the reality!
And i'm not 16 years old either , but 49 .
I try to create garments for all sorts of bodies .





Don't be shy, express yourself with fantasy , it is good for the mood !
