“ Hello ~ Bonjour !
My name is Celyn, but I prefer being called Lila .
I am an artist, a happy wife, + mother of two little girls.
I believe that surrounding ourselves with purely positive and inspiring affirmations will have a clear impact on our personal well-being. As we all live in a world full of constant change, packed with never ending business and personal challenges, often there is little time available, we all need some inspirational and positive messages and stories to provide us with some balance.
As far as I can remember, I always love making “things”, be it with paper, paint, clay, textiles.
Few years ago I started printing textiles, creating one-of-a-kind and limited edition graphic cushion covers, fabric panels and upcycled clothes. UN LIEU SUR TERRE was born!
In my work, I like to create depth, texture and movement through the subtle layering of prints & fabrics and combining a range of different techniques such as screen printing, lino-printing, applique, hand+machine stitching, hand painting, mono prints, frayed edges and distressed ink printing. I mostly print onto textural, 100% cottons and cotton/linen blends and lightweight linens.
I believe in creating a business that do its part to create a sustainable future. No matter how small a part I may get to play in this future, I have an opportunity to use eco-friendly materials and choose to do so.
Therefore I only works with eco-friendly, non-toxic, water-based inks as the colors are vibrant, durable, have a soft handle and are better for my own health, yours and the environment.”
Thank you for buying UN LIEU SUR TERRE and making this world “a [better ] place on earth”.
Celyn Lila Nicholson
Owner, Maker, Designer
Through my designs, I strive to reflect the joy of using natural materials while making, re-cycling, re-purposing objects, clothes and goods in all kinds. As a former mixed media artist. I truly enjoy experimenting with techniques & materials.
Thanks so much for your interest in Un Lieu Sur Terre!
Un lieu sur terre is a ONE person store.
I am the designer, crafter, commercial and shipper.
As I make it a point to recycle, about 50 percent of the material I use for crafting and for packaging is recycled. Much of that comes from the vintage goods markets that I try to visit as much as i can. Working with pre-loved materials gives a "suplement d'ame" to my creations.

I send my products by priority airmail with a tracking number. They usually reach their destination in 7 to 14 days, less if you live in Europe.

Additional policies and FAQs
Please contact me and we'll see what we can come up with.
The way I usually work is I send a written description and/or a sketch of the design for approval. As soon as we've agreed on that, I ask for purchase and payment before making the product. Once finished, I send a photo. The buyer will give approval based on this photo, as well as, of course, a written description from me. I will only ship the item when the buyer is 100-percent satisfied with her order.
Once the item has been approved, then the sale is final. I am sorry, but I cannot accept returns on custom orders.
If you would like to give a gift card, so your recipient can choose what item they'd like from the shop. I have one available that can be made in any denomination of your choice.
An item you had your heart set on is sold? Please don't hesitate to convo me. If I have one available I'm happy to list one for you or you can commission an original creation as well.
