Sarah Espeute is a French artist-designer.
In her studio in Marseille, located in the south of France, she explores embroidery in a poetic and minimalist way. Each piece tells a story inspired by her sensibility and becomes a sensitive work in the heart of everyone.
Sarah uses two types of embroidery for her creations: traditional handmade embroidery in Marseille and Cornely embroidery on an old manual 19th century machine, in Paris. She has created a new economy by forming independent embroiderers to her way to embroider. They are artists like her, living in Marseille and sharing the same love for embroidery. It is a small, local and friendly production.
It is also a sustainable embroidery since each piece is handcrafted in France, in our atelier, with high quality French products, exclusively in old fabrics on our shop. Sarah loves old materials. In this optic of valuing the old while thinking of durability, she collects linen & cotton sheets from private individuals all over France. These pieces are between 50 and 100 years old. Therefore, each fabric has its own family history.
