Merci pour l'originalité et la qualité!
Eco-friendly accessories for your every day needs.
I was looking into a way I could make a bit of money without sending the kids to daycare when I tripped on my sewing machine...
Then I thought: why not?! So Cul de Sac was born somewhere in 2011.
Turning to thrift shops for supplies came naturally as i was doing volunteer work there and saw how much clothing and accessories were donated to these kind of places... and saw also that a good quantity of it was thrown away...
I started to reuse old unsalable bed sheets as interlining along with interfacing for a nice underlaying structure for bags while keeping the lining all fresh and unwrinkled.
Then came the men's suit pants... and neckties and shirts! I mean, good quality fabric clothing had to be used again in some other ways! and one thing leading to another, I started reclaiming the zippers from those pants to use in my bags and cosmetic cases, and belt as straps and....
And the good thing is, the money I donate for used clothing and unwanted goods is use for local charity!
Having an eco-friendly business and being able to help local charities really fulfill me, being the true INFJ I am.

All of my products are made using reclaimed or upcycled materials.
The bags, pouches and cases are made using only upcycled fabrics and sometimes with reclaimed hardware. I take great care when making my bags so I can offer a very high quality bag.
All items are made in a cat friendly house.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
- Money Order
The items sold must be paid within 3 days or the sale will be cancelled.
I try to get my shipping fees as low as possible so if the buyer wants insurance or confirmation on the parcel it will be at her/his charge and I must be convo first to adjust shipping costs accordingly.
Refunds and Exchanges
If there is a problem with the sewing hardware used, if they break or are not functional I will either have it ship back at my expense for repair or ship another one free of charge.
