THE MIMOSA BLOUSE


Bonjour ! I am the Mimosa blouse 🌷


I am 100% Made in France with upcycled, repurposed and organic materials.


Here is my story ...

ITEMS WITH EXTRA SOUL

We believe that monograms and precious handmade artworks are forever. More than clothing, Maison Flore crafts soulfoul and poetic items. Made to last and be passed on to the next generation as antique trousseau were passed on from mother to daughter, they are a true witness of History and savoir-faire, with a unique story behind each piece of fabric, that we can't wait to share with you. Carry the story beyond and make it your own !

THE INSPIRATION

The Mimosa Blouse is inspired by Flore's grand-mothers, Marie & Berthe, and the refined treasures they used to create. They were trousseau embroiderers and often use and collect laces and trims. These treasures Flore inherited in a small wooden box inspired her for her very first creation for Maison Flore.

BORN IN PARIS

The Mimosa Blouse is born in Paris, rue Charlot in Maison Flore workshop-boutique. Flore designs each item and her creative process includes materials sourcing, pattern-making on mannequin or paper and cutting out materials in house. For this blouse, Flore created a special pattern that can fit many sizes at the same time to avoid any waste of fabric.

VINTAGE EMBROIDERED TRIMS

The Mimosa blouse has a lovely pierrot collar and drawstring wrists made of vintage embroidered cotton trims, in ciel color. It is coming from an old haberdashery deadstock based in Brittany, France. The owner's niece had this stock left from the 1950's. She only has a small quantity so the Mimosa blouse comes in very limited edition.

EXCESS STOCK GOTS CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON

The main fabric used for the Mimosa blouse is 100% Gots certified organic cotton veil. We chose a high quality fabric in an existing stock from our supplier based in Waldbröl, Germany, so we didn't have to produce any new fabric for Mimosa. The fibre comes from Turkey and then is spun and weaved in Waldbröl. This company only produces organic cotton, peace silk, and weaved trims handmade with german vintage machines.

REBIRTH & RELIVE

Inspired by her grand-mothers' work, Flore chose to give a new life to abandoned treasures. She sources local refined vintage trims and textiles as monogramed sheets or linen, laces and collars, all made of amazing sustainable materials from 1900's to 1960's. They are 100% made of cotton, linen or metis, a cotton/linen blend. These precious materials, soft and solid at the same time, are repurposed or reworked with new embroideries or mixed with high quality fabrics. All fabric scraps are kept to create pouches, that can be used as bulk bags, but also new materials we plan to developp soon.

GOTS CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON THREAD

We use 100% Gots certified organic cotton sewing thread. The fibre comes from Egypt and then is spun and dyed in Soest, The Netherlands. This thread company was founded in 1970 and remains family owned ! They manufacture all of their threads in Europe and care about the safety of their employees and the environment.

LOCAL COUTURE

This Mimosa blouse has been 100% manufactured in Paris, rue Charlot, by Flore herself. Every step of sewing has been made in our workshop boutique. Yes, it's french couture baby !
