"This brand is a family adventure and a result of teamwork! This is not a project that I could have carried out on my own. The Atelier Brunette brand belongs to the team that works here as well as to our clients."- Annabelle Kumar, founder of Anna Ka Baazar and Atelier Brunette.
Through a meeting and love at first sight with India, a passion for textiles and patterns, an irresistible desire to create and offer a contemporary vision of sewing and more broadly the DIY world.
Annabelle Kumar, founder of Anna Ka Bazaar and Atelier Brunette, has gathered all the ingredients to offer you fabric collections and haberdashery goods specifically developed for you. Her goal is to forge lasting and authentic links and share rich experiences around a common passion.
More than a promise, it is an art of living, a state of mind that our team has embodied since our first steps in 2008.
It all started in 2008 with the creation of "Anna Ka Bazaar”, our online shop, followed by our Parisian store in the Bastille neighbourhood. An innovative catalog of exclusive printed fabrics, carefully selected for their originality and in small series which was adored by you!
Not long after, Annabelle felt the need to meet your desires as closely as possible by associating them with her personal aspirations, her own universe, her vision and definition of sewing for yourself!
From the designs to the choice of materials, through manufacturing and distribution, Annabelle wanted to create a chain of know-how without any intermediaries.
Atelier Brunette was then invited to the heart of the project in 2013.
Through various collections, hundreds of high quality fabrics have emerged, accompanied by a coordinated range of haberdashery notions, enriched with assorted bias tape to serve your increasing demands and captivating sewing projects.
In 2015, we arrived with our fabric rolls and our good humour at 16 rue Keller in Paris where we opened the doors to what would become the first Atelier Brunette boutique. More than a shop, it is also a workshop and a laboratory of ideas.
In 2019, we welcomed our first range of buttons, produced entirely in France in perfect harmony with our fabric and colour chart. Offering the widest range of colours and materials for your sewing projects, an essential and permanent development to support you and free up your creativity.
Atelier Brunette is the combination of three key pillars: intuition, singularity and creativity. Mix these up and you will get a hand-sewn wardrobe that is perfectly unique in every way!
“Beyond my passion for textiles and prints, I have an irresistible desire to create and offer a contemporary vision of the sewing world and the incomparable satisfaction that comes from doing it yourself.”- Annabelle Kumar, Founder of Anna Ka Baazar and Atelier Brunette
A passionate and enthusiastic team who share the same values and are mobilized to promote the values of Atelier Brunette.
Because it is essential for our team to pay particular attention to our environmental and social impact from the start, we are developing ranges of products and haberdashery made in France, Europe and India from certified manufacturers.
The special history that binds Annabelle to India has naturally resulted in the choice of local partners with the ancestral know-how in making high quality fabrics. Our requirement in terms of product traceability is uncompromising and transcribed thanks to the absence of intermediaries in our production chain.
Although we remain a small, independent brand, we have the strong will to integrate social and environmental issues into our daily lives and into our projects.
By upgrading our fabric remnants into pouches that we slip into your orders for free.
By choosing recyclable, reusable and FSC-certified packaging.
By supporting causes that are close to our heart. We occasionally donate a percentage of product sales to charities that we support through marketing operations such as October Rose.
We always try to do better, question ourselves, and accept not being able to do everything right away. We are in the process of developing a range of GOTS certified fabrics to meet your needs and continue to do our part.
Annabelle has a secret about the origins of the brands she created.
"Anna Ka Bazaar literally means Anna's Shop in Hindi. My first shop was inspired by India after the birth of my two daughters. Atelier Brunette was born with the idea of creating a sewing and creation workshop to make beautiful things for my two Brunettes. The desire to create a different and meaningful brand became obvious and I wanted to extend this experience on a larger scale and offer it to seamstresses of all levels and all those passionate about DIY.”
