OUR EXPERTISE

"Couturier" craftsmanship

At Inge de Jonge, everything is hand-made, by qualified seamstresses, in the magnificent Cévennes Piedmont region.

The precision in the gesture, the sharpness of her eye; the smoothness of the touch.
Love in action that our teams deploy to create pieces of remarkable quality for you.

The rhythm of the collections

Our stylist has chosen to no longer make a large spring-summer or fall-winter collection. But ephemeral, more spontaneous collections. Inspired by a period film, vibrant music or by her last weekend in the Cévennes... Small collections, every month - every two months, as close as possible to inventiveness and craftsmanship. Rare or unique pieces, full of daring and love!

The creating process

Years of experience and practice have given Inge several ways of approaching the creating process.
Sometimes the idea of a model comes gradually from an exceptional fabric, unearthed some where. Sometimes it's in a dream or while reading a novel. Sometimes it is the pattern itself coming from her head, inviting her to create an exclusive fabric.

Old fabrics revalued

Inspiration from the fabric

• Make a unique find:
> In a flea market, such as an old curtain or a traditional tablecloth.
> In forgotten, small stocks of precious fabrics, at a specialist trader.
> In the offcuts of technical materials from a partner textile manufacture.

• Imagining a model by honoring the story
and the characteristics of the fabric:

like its fragility, its dimensions ...

Patronage

We represent on paper the template that we want to create to serve as a reference when cutting the fabric.
A percentage or gradation is applied to be able to create the different sizes.

Washing or dyeing

The old linens are cleaned and some fabrics are dyed by us.

> With phosphate-free dyes
to preserve the environment.
> Some fabrics keep some
authentic imprints of time.

Looping

We start the cycle again for a new collection!

Cutout

The fabric is cut using an old machine called
"Circular cutter", as well as scissors. This requires great precision. With us it is Inge who carries out this delicate step.

Sewing

All the parts are assembled by hand by our qualified seamstresses, in Ardèche and
in the Gard.

Quality Control

We check the sturdiness of the seams, closures and buttons, as well as the wear of the garment to ensure that the model is correctly made.

Cleaning and ironing

We pamper the garment one last time, before handing it over to you!

Shooting

A location is made and an original place to take photographs of the clothes is found, within the visual universe imagined for the collection.
