Estuaire magazine no.188
If you pay close attention to trees, you learn a number of things. Their bark protects, nourishes and cares for them. But the bark's strength is matched by its vulnerability. Bark never recovers from cuts. What tree wounds and trauma have in common is that they never go away. Neither the tree nor the human can heal. A skin simply forms around it; the body remains fragile.
Writing sometimes acts like a skin, to cover the skin that no longer exists.
In this one hundred and eighty-eighth issue, we sense the impetus to write the wound. What trembles ends up worrying. Wounds sting; they are scratched. You can't rest. Until you lift the skin to see what's crawling underneath - something less cosmetic. Words seem to come out through every feint of the body.
Under the direction of Stéphanie Roussel, Marilou Craft and Chloé Savoie-Bernard.

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%.
