The designing process
Each of our product design starts in our home workshop. Pattern making, fabric cutting, sewing up the prototype, fitting, adjusting, testing in the ocean. And starting all over again when needed, until the product is perfect!
The Mademoiselle herself grew up in the beautiful Basque country of Southern France until she found a strong connection to the lifestyle and surf community of Byron Bay, Australia in 2012. Since then she's been living the endless summer between those two places.
Her surfing journey began at a young age and it wasn’t long before longboarding became an addiction.
Shortly after followed the dream and desire to create the perfect surf outfits.
...So, she learnt everything she needed to be able to make her own patterns, and sew up the prototypes herself to test their feel in action.
The Mademoiselle’s designs are practical, playful and perfect for any surf condition.
You will find in each one of them little details that make the difference for a high quality product that is not only good looking but functional.
Committed to having a small carbon footprint
We believe in ethically made, slow fashion that allows you to look your best while doing what you love while making sure we don’t harm the environment.
As such our pieces are designed and produced sustainably with the ocean in mind.
