Its detailed story
I sewed this Zip-Zip, a small, compact, and practical coin purse, ready to slip into your bag and keep your change or cards. It's a simple yet effective design with two zippered pockets and a small wrist strap.
Every year, “Octobre Rose” is an occasion that particularly touches me, even though I'm not exactly sure what to do. Or at least, I thought I wasn't ready to publicly invest this moment. In 2022, I created the “Bourgeon” Shoulder Bag as a tribute to my sister Laurence, who passed away 14 years ago from an aggressive form of breast cancer.
I auctioned it off for the benefit of a local association, Ama Rose's. It was acquired by a woman who decided to return it to me this year (2023) to auction it again for the association. At the time, I added a small coin purse “Zip-Zip”, which was also donated and sold for the benefit of the association during the Sivalor open house event in early September. So, I decided to create another one for this year, and this is the one you are viewing now.
