Leather goods, stationery and home decor made from recycled materials in Nantes (France) since 2014.
I am Delphine, a French designer, employed at school with children with disabilities, and a mom of 2. After a career in fashion design, I co-founded my first craft brand in 2011 with a member of my family. I learned a lot of things about managing its own small handcraft business. Helped by this experience, I decided to go ahead and to create my own brand in 2014: Hello Petronille.
My creations belong to their time, while conveying other values, for those wishing to linger. To start this project, I went back to the source, the happy years of my childhood: holidays in caravans, knitting lessons with granny Georgette, sketching everytime and everywhere ... I've mixed it with my desires of respecting my values by using recycled materials, especially when it comes to leather. My creative world is very graphic, inspired by the seventies flowered patterns. I transform these vintage materials into contemporary and outwardly minimal items with great finishing, which they bring their soul.
