Solange is 37 years old and is the creator of the Ptit Sol brand. She lives in the Vaud Riviera and is a social educator in the field of disability. She learned sewing when she was very young, at home and in compulsory school, then as an autodidact. She likes to sew, knit, embroider, spend time with family, with her friends, read, take walks in nature and learn new things.
Because of her job, an activity to clear her head is essential, and sewing is one of those activities for her. She started by sewing her own clothes, with natural and organic materials, in order to reduce her ecological impact and not to participate in fast fashion. This went hand in hand with a globally zero waste lifestyle and she started to create her own zero waste items, starting with washable wipes. She also started to sew items related to this way of life, for her own use, such as bulk bags, bread bags, always in organic cotton, linen, hemp or by collecting second-hand fabric scraps. . The choice of materials is very important for her, if we make objects related to the zero waste lifestyle, we must be consistent and use materials with the least possible impact, unlike ordinary cotton, whose ecological impact is really bad. Those around her began to ask her for items and little by little she sold them in a few shops and on the Ialoo platform. But she wants this activity to remain a pleasure, which is why she produces on a small scale.
Why does his brand have this name? This is the nickname her grandpa gave her when she was a child!
What are his favorite products? Those are bulk bags and bread bags, with a tare embroidered on the bag. She uses them several times a week and she always has them in her bag, they do not take up space, but are very useful for making any kind of purchase and avoiding plastic or other single-use containers.
