About cousudefilgris

Sales 66
On Etsy since 2014

You never know where life will lead you ...

The cousudefilgris story began when my fourteen-year-old daughter wanted to make a lunch bag for herself. We got the fabrics out and made the very first prototype.

During the year that followed, I made several lunch bags, improving on the design with each one. I added insulation, a shoulder strap, etc.

One day, a friend asked me if I would make a lunch bag for her daughter. Soon after, I started getting phone calls from strangers who had heard about my lunch bags from others.

Three years (and as many Christmas bazars) later, I opened shop on Etsy with my lunch bags and occasionnaly other products in the cousudefilgris line.

All are made by hand, using mostly recycled fabrics: damaged clothes and fabric leftovers.

And by the way, what does cousudefilgris mean? In French, we have this expression: "cousu de fil blanc" which translates, litteraly, to "sewn with white thread". It is said of a story that is obviously a fabrication: the white thread gives it away. When I decided to use only grey thread in my work, I just knew that my products would go by the name "sewn with grey thread".

    Somehow, everything I see is potential material for creating something. Which is why I so enjoy working with recycled fabrics! Please visit my other Etsy shop: FranceGionetArtist
