Atelier Serraspina, A Small Workshop in the Heart of the Catalan Pyrenees

 

History is our passion and we strive to make it alive everyday.
We draw our inspiration from the past to design timeless costumes  in high quality fabrics.
 
HELLO, I'M CAROLINE, FOUNDER OF THE ATELIER SERRASPINA
Passionate about history and stories of all kinds that inspire my creations, I was born in Paris, France, and I started sewing as soon as I settled, 30 years ago, in a remote and wild valley of the Catalan Pyrenees, dominated by the magic mountain of the Serraspina. This is where, every day, I combine the past with the present.
Atelier Serraspina, About Us

Whether you have discovered my Atelier as you search the Internet or follow my adventures on Instagram, I am delighted to welcome you and to open the doors of my shop. You should know that it is the result of a “dream come true”.  Actors, reenactors, fans of history bounding, and everyone, welcome!

LIVING HISTORY
History is our passion. Whether we dress in period costumes or prefer contemporary outfits, but which evoke a time that is dear to us, we wish to make History alive in our daily lives. The shop at l'Atelier offers historical clothing that fits into this spirit.

TIME TO DO THINGS THE RIGHT WAY
Each historical dress is the result of a slowly maturing process: from the costume designing to the acquisition of materials, through testing and retouching, all the steps took their time to make the garment last you a lifetime.

TIMELESS CREATIONS

We draw our inspiration from the past to design timeless costumes that flatter the female figure. If our clothes reflect a certain period fashion - 1760-1785-, many are wearable today. Our approach is as much part of the historical reconstruction and reenactment as it is of the present time.

“There is nothing new except what has been forgotten- This quote was
said by Rose Bertin when Marie Antoinette approved a dress Mademoiselle
Bertin had refashioned for her.”
