YAEL ET VALERIE’S CREATIVE PROCESS

TELL US ABOUT YOUR CREATIVE INSPIRATION?

Valerie Louis: All my designs come from my life experiences: a childhood memory, an emotion, a revelation. So, I cherish the emotion, envision it, and put it into words. Those words are expressed to our artistic team and together we illustrate. That's why all our collections tell a story. They all come from my love for beauty, interior design, tourism, culture and Haiti.

“I wanted to create Haitian decor with fabrics, wallpapers, and home accessories that reflect our culture so I searched and I couldn’t find anything I could connect with,” says Louis. “That’s when patterns started to pop out. The emptiness needed to be fulfilled.”

And when you’re passionate about something, you become obsessed! I wish to put all my experiences and revelations into a pattern! I have 155 ideas and so far only 5 are out. I always listen to this little voice in me, telling me which one I should focus on and which one should be published. I offer several design options to make my clients happy. By choosing their own color, dimensions, or shape of pillow, it allows them to really connect with the product and be part of its creation.
