What/who is Chat Chocolat
Hi, I am Véronique Vereyken. I design fabrics under the brand name Chat Chocolat.
I live in Antwerp (Belgium), city of fashion. The place to get inspired!
As a child I wanted to become a fashion designer. Children dreams don`t always come true, though.
I`m a young mom and started sewing some years ago. Creating clothes gives me a lot of satisfaction. In search for lovely, trendy fabrics I decided to start designing them myself.
And that gives me even more satisfaction!
I hope you will be inspired by my designs and create beautiful items with them. I`m eager to see your masterpieces on instagram or facebook: #chatchocolat
A brand new website - with brand new blog to be of better and greater service for you!
So, you might think, what is new? Everything and nothing actually. Most visual for you all is the design. For me, the website behind the website, more features aka better SEO!
The rest is the same, the European - Belgian Designer fabrics. My little piece of Belgian Fabric heaven to offer to you. And there is more! So much more and I have a lot in store for you all! Yes I know, "pace yourselves Elisa". I try to teach my children that and while telling them, I need to tell myself. Oh, there is so much I want to achieve, but one step at the time!
A friend of mine says "it's a trial and error thing" Well she is kind of right. We keep learning, we keep wanting to improve, we keep growing. And that is what I want for me, to keep growing in what I do and offer you a better service by launching EldFluga 2.0
While working on this - together with my new friend Laetitia from Inkognito Writing - I have been looking for some new designers, new fabrics and besides all that on new creations.
If you are looking into starting your own website and you could use some help, she is really the place to be. Laetitia sees what you need to be visual in google searches and looks at your site trough the eyes of a customer. Not only does she design your site, you have the option to let you guide you after your site is launched. Yes, true, a very happy customer here. Be sure to check out her website & follow her for tips and tricks!
And because of the launch of my new website you can take advantage of this:
Don't miss out on this one! Valid trough nov 30!
Fall has arrived - chilly mornings - chilly evenings. What do we need? Hoodies! Yes! PJ's! Yes! So, worked out a few patterns - mixed and matched up the best of a few and created my own EldFluga pattern - no no - not to sell - just to use and offer you a handmade item. Children are the easiest for me to sew for. I see them playing, sleeping, ... I see the pattern lines moving while they move. And a child's body is easier to dress. us adult on the other hand are a quit the challenge. We are all build differently. So, measurements need be taken very precise. I have a few orders to make for my family and friends back in Belgium and that is the challenge. There is no way they can come over to have a fitting moment - nope, I have to have it spot on! And what better way to do that then to make my husband and myself what my customers ask? Right! A win win! Love it!
I can only say, stay tuned - I have lot's to tell you, lot's to learn, lot's to share!
Thank you, Elisa
