Experienced leather artisan with a background in the luxury industry. Throughout my 5+ years of experience, I have developed a unique understanding and sensibility to product design. ATELIER SYLVIE DE PAUW is based in Madrid.
I have a former experience in cultural event production, but in 2010 I decided I wanted to give my hands a chance! I had the privilege to be taught by a master (MOF, Meilleur Ouvrier de France) in France for one year in a specialized apprentice school.
I work following precise and traditional techniques of hand-stitching and edge finishing. Furthermore, I pride myself on producing high-quality leather goods.
My business objectives are:
In Atelier Sylvie De Pauw, I want to develop B2B activity through specific projects as my core business.
At the same time, I will propose both a small collection of available high-quality leather goods and an ornamental one in collaboration with a ceramist.
My learnings from the Crafting Business Programme:
Decison making is fundamental.
