This post is on the first page all the time ,
because it is my presentation .

My name is Jenny Eve .
I'm French and i apologize for my bad English language ….
For this reason , the bad English language , my presentation will be short !
I'm an independent  Textile Artisan , Couturier . 
I have my own style , my character , i don't make garment "fashionable" , i prefer to think "timeless" 

All garments and accessories are made and photographed by me .
They are hand-stitched, hand-embroidered, without mechanical sewing, because I don't like using the sewing machine so much, but sometimes it is necessary, for example to make the fabric bags where I pack my creations.
I think the hand-sewing is more decorative. It takes much longer time, but the result is delicate, with soul. To sew 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. Sewing with a machine, with all the tactactac vroom vroom, no, thank you, it is not for me , it is stressful ;)

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 ,
From finest and precious antique lace to
vintage ethnic treasuries .

They inspire me , I collect and recycle 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.

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 live "in and with" them all the time 
and they 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 Maecenas 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.

Sometimes , with humor , i play to be model in my creations show that a small woman like me
( i'm 1,59 cm / 5'2" ) and curvy ( i'm FR 42 / US 12 ) 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 46 .

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