CONSULTANCY SESSIONS

For female creative entrepreneurs of handcrafted designs

 

Artisan is something clients recognize you as.

It is an authentic narrative about the materials used and the special process used to create the designs.

Remember, it is a story of culture (how it’s made) and nature (what it’s made of).

I started The Cartonnerie in 2003. I always wanted to do something creative, but I spent a long time searching for what kind of creativity, until I went to a box making workshop, also called 'French cartonnage'. Since then I have been designing and making boxes & folios by hand in a traditional way.

 

I work with FSC certified greyboard and paper, linen made from natural fibres, water based glue and I try to recycle as much waste and packages as possible.

 

If you would to learn how to make your own box, folio or portfolio you can take one of my online courses or masterclass. I love to teach you my beautiful craft!

Box for wedding invitations lined with seychelle velvet and foil pressed logo

I was looking for something very special and high end for when

a client first unveils their wedding invitations, something we have spent weeks creating for them. Sabrine did not disappoint, the craftsmanship on our boxes was second to none and anyone that comes in contact with one is blown away by their sheer beauty. Our expectations have been exceeded and the quality of her work is just impeccable, we are in awe!

I have been looking for some bespoke invitation boxes for a while and was so excited to discover Sabrine! Her work is absolutely breath-taking and I am in love with my branded velvet boxes.

I can't wait to hand them out to wedding suppliers! Sabrine was really easy to work with and the quality of her work is beautiful,

I am so happy I found her!
