Intimate, painful and supportive, Anick Arsenault's poetry opens a window to shout or let a breeze pass through, plays with light and shadow, uproots herself and wishes to anchor herself back to the earth; mother, friend, lover, she wraps herself up to keep her inner battles warm, but without refusing to open her coat.
Habitantes is a woman's resilience, finding beauty in unlikely places, falling, getting up again, overflowing with love in spite of everything, not allowing pernicious enemies to fructify to the point of quarrelling; it is a strong and gentle kiss.
lèche mon pelage
fumé à la boucane de genévrier
les carapaces à dissoudre sous la langue
laisse le souffle entrer
par les portes grandes ouvertes

Anne-Marie and Catherine are the inseparable friends who founded the brand in 2009. Their sustainable and minimalist clothing collections are designed in their Mile End workshop-boutique, then gently manufactured in Montreal from natural fiber textiles.
We have been experimenting and refining our processes for a dozen years to work with the best natural fibers available. We select our materials for their durability, comfort, aesthetic properties and for the conditions in which they were produced. We give priority to suppliers close to our workshop. Many of our jerseys and knits are made in Canada, while some woven fabrics come from the United States. For more specialized materials, we work with Japan and some European countries (mainly Italy and northern countries). It is essential for us to make sure that the workers' conditions are fair, and the best way to be sure is to choose countries that have a charter of individual rights similar to ours!
We ship from our Mile End (Montreal) workshop in an average of 3 to 5 business days. In Canada, delivery is free for orders of 150$ before taxes and more. The shipping rate is fixed for Quebec and Ontario at 10$ and for the rest of Canada, 15$. For local delivery in Montreal, the fee is 7$ for orders under 150$. By entering your shipping address, you will know if the local delivery option is available to you.
Exchanges are accepted within 10 days of receipt of the package. A notice must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain return authorization. Items must be unworn and the package must include your name and order number. Shipping costs for the return are at the customer's expense and atelier b will pay for the return of the second item. A credit may be applied, no refund.
Masks, underwear and sale items are on final sale.
If the color or size you are looking for is no longer available, please write to us. We have an inventory of fabric in the shop that allows us to make any of our patterns, whether it is this one or a piece from a past collection. Just write to us at email@example.com with the pattern you are looking for so we can suggest fabrics and colors! Orders sewn in our workshop are at regular price (if the pattern is on sale, the discount does not apply to a piece sewn to order). Production time may vary from 4 to 6 weeks. Items from past collections sewn to order have a 10% surcharge. We can also make alterations to the pattern, in which case there will be an additional charge depending on the situation which can vary from 10 to 20%.
