Leather and fabric wallet: the choice of materials
cotton lining - with geometric patterns
The raw material, choice of skin and fabric
A crucial preliminary step and source of inspiration before making a wallet: the choice of colors and materials. Anne-Cecile, designer, creates for you, imagines associations, chooses, collects and prepares herself the materials to make a wallet. All this preparation contributes to the value of the product. You can't imagine what CREATIONACC does for you
Finding the best leather
Everything starts with an inspiration. The stock is largely made of cut skins, recovered from clothes. The choice only awaits a desire. The recycling of leather is at the heart of the approach. All year long, Anne-Cecile looks for the raw material. Like a leitmotiv for more than 5 years, she surveys the markets, the warehouses, and spots what will make a folder (portfolio) more unique than any other. By hand, everything is chosen according to its aspect, cut out, between the seams. A long manual work.
The choice of the lining: the fabric
Second inspiration, and not the least, the fabric. Its colors and patterns must inspire the designer to dress the inside of the wallet. It' s a marriage that must be happy, in accordance with the exterior color and the elastic. As for the leather, you have to take into account its thickness. Is it a cotton? Does it resist washing? Is it pleasant to the touch? The designer looks for novelty, consistent but unexpected, surprising, subtle. Obviously the biggest brands are present in the stock of cotton fabric: "ie Paris", "petit pan", "Riley Blake" or "Kahobas". Each portfolio/folder is a recreation. One will remember a collection of models made with this leather and this fabric. One will say "I remember". Only one customer will enjoy it and be able to testify to it. It is a unique commitment and a unique story. Finding a worn-out fabric is sometimes impossible. Some have been part of distant trips, have been bought in stores on the other side of the world during vacations.
Recovery of fabric from shirts
CREATIONACC transforms clothing fabric. What could be better than a vintage fabric recovered from a shirt ? A source of creativity that is sometimes unexpected, it even happens that inspiration is born from these improbable cottons. Thus, the desire to create a "tartan" collection was born. In early 2020, the first wallets inspired by the land of peat will be offered for sale. The spirit is playful. The ultimate in ecology: By recovering the fabric, CREATIONACC offers a 100% recycled product, one more stone in the eco-friendly commitment.

Choose a color for the elastic
A little touch of fantasy some would say, an essential color line others would say, color of the elastic that crosses the leather enhances the colors in every way. In addition to bringing a touch of originality, and a third axis of personalization, the color recalls the color of the interior fabric. In addition to being aesthetic, its bright color can help you find it easily at the bottom of the handbag.
