Designing eco-friendly socially responsible handmade products : a work from the heart!

La Girafe Couture is a Montreal-based micro business founded by Angelica Fajardo, a Montreal fashion designer of Mexican origin.

Over the years, Angelica has evolved as a humanitarian and eco responsible talented creator as she gave sewing classes to women in need on a pro bono basis while she was a partner in a sewing atelier designing and making bridal and evening gowns. Angelica worked for over 12 years as a designer for a clothing company in Montreal.

Her passion is to create and handcraft unique pieces and she put her passion to use by creating bath robes for her toddlers, then clothing for her growing kids, followed by ice skating costumes as her kids took on this sport, as well as other unique items such as cosmetic bags, wet bags for bathing suits, cosmetic bags made of cotton fabric, reusable unpaper towels to replace disposable paper towels and most recently face masks with a touch of her own style.

Angelica puts her heart into everything she does and her passion is showing in her latest collection of handcrafted eco-friendly cotton washable reusable face masks made by herself and by unemployed and talented women at home.

Most of these seamstresses are not able to find a job or even have one at all, as most of them are retired, others have have several young children to care for or have to care for their elderly parents at home. Being able to work from home allows them to provide for an additional income to their family.

The attributes of the La Girafe Couture micro-business are a passion for quality, confort and style along with a dedication to having an environmental and social impact.

Angelica's motto: work with your heart!

    Designing is my passion. I love creating with my hands what I see in my head. I wish to reconcile design with ecology and sustainability, through my choice of natural fibers and high quality workmanship to make long lasting reusable products.
