HISTORY OF THE ENTRE-PEAUX WORKSHOP

On a sunny morning in November 2004, Maude Léonard (owner of the Atelier Entre-Peaux, working in upholstery and leather goods) had her coffee quietly while looking at her recycling bin that she had to put on the sidewalk the same morning.

She thinks, "What a misuse we can do! We should find a way for each person to reduce it."

With her creative soul, she looked at her entire box and came up with an idea! That morning, the green bin headed to the side of the workshop rather than to the path.

"I'm in the field of furnishings, so why not decorative cushions that have placed it on the sofa to look pretty, but especially to make people think (myself included!) on our abusive consumption and our ecological footprint!
Make you think... it must then be translucent, to see the inside and not miss the message it conveys. Even after 10 years, they will not be able to forget it... Now, the materials! Why not the store flyers that we receive in large quantities, the grocery bags that are so polluting and we never know what to do with them and especially the food styrofoam that is not recyclable in Quebec? Then the selling price. Ecology is everyone's business, so the price of cushions must be accessible to all budgets! The assembly methods and materials used must then comply with all these points'

The prototypes are made, she then informs the people around her to get their impressions. Acceptable result.

Following the comments of these people, she adjusts the product somewhat and presents it again.
Desired result!

She then discovers that there are other possibilities of objects that she could make with these materials. Notebooks, e-readers, wallets, bookmarks, coasters, etc.


During the year 2005 she worked in her workshop to think, create and produce these new products, which all became her passion!

In October 2006, she took advantage of the opening day of La Semaine Québécoise de Réduction Des Déchets to launch her 2 new babies, Le Sac à main and Chapeau "Déco-Écolo". A small urban and original look, unique pieces, an affordable price, recycled materials, and above all a message to pass on!

Since 2007, Maude Léonard has been delighted to earn a full-time living and even hires a few people, to help her produce products dedicated to boutiques as well as offer a corporate service, for all Quebec companies, wishing to offer green!
