  1. Thanks mom!

    The birth of De Fil en Pétales came from the passing away of my mother,

    Colette. Such an ironic statement when you come to think of it; birth

    from death, escpecially coming from an obstetric-gynecologist!!!

  2. Kids and St-Hubert

    De Fil en Pétales has grown to become a small "big business" in 2013...to

    the point where my basement which was used as our headquarters for

    production, transformation, and distribution (what an adventure, believe

    me!) had become too small, and renting an office space was unaffordable

    with respect to our income.

  5. Biggy The Little Companion

    Oh how lucky I was to find this house. Never lose hope for a better day. My name is Biggy, I'm five-year-old, I think ... One eye less ... but so lucky to be alive!

    I started in a family where violence was daily. Unfortunately my dad had anger management issues. I have landed more than once in the walls. The last time, my eye was expelled from my brow bone, pending only by my optic nerve. Thank goodness, a good Samaritan, taxi driver, picked me up when I staggered on the edge of a sidewalk. I was taken to a veterinarian who took care of me on a voluntary basis. I was then placed in an animal shelter. That's when my future masters were contacted. How could one find a dad and a mom so perfect for my broken heart? Would an angel in the invisible protect me?

    They came to get me and as soon as I entered their house, I went straight to sleep in the lazyboy of my dad ... my heart knew immediately that I had finally arrived home! And they knew that a new baby had arrived by a magical stork!

    I am living there since 2 years and guess what my mom does in life? She works for De Fil en Petales. And she participated in the creation of the Little Companion. This is a great stainless steel product, very resistant, that allows to put a small strand of my fur, so that mom, dad and my big brother with two legs, can have me close to their heart during all the day and even on vacation! A little bit of me is with them, and this FOREVER ... What a comfort for me after all these years of darkness. Like what there is always sun after the rain when we do not lose hope. The Little Companion, decorative item for handbag, vehicle rearview mirror or women's necklace. In addition, it is customizable with decorative charms to choose from. What a better gift than to give "this precious" ... hi! hi!

  6. The Little Companion

    Our four-legged little companion is an integral part of the family in our day to day life and a cherished member of our household.

     

    Especially for me, they are considered my babies...Having suffered from fertility issues, I had to endure miscarriages, medical procedures, in vitro fertilization treatments, and failures for years. After each miscarriage, we decided to adopt a Golden Retriever. We had five!, in the hopes of experiencing motherhood of future two-legged children! During a period of fifteen years, I became a mother to our four-legged fury campanions, each one as precious and unique as the next: my babies. Paffen, Sydney, Simbad, Gaspard, and Flannelle, as well as our adopted Yuki, a Bernese Mountain Dog. It is very difficult to describe the pain associated with their passing away, almost impossible to explain. To be able to love them enough without regards to our own sorrow and grief, and let them leave in peace is I think something that only parents of animals can understand.

     

    De Fil en Pétales is a young and flourishing company that has as a goal to preserve and cherish the memory of our loved ones. So after having had many requests from numerous clients for custom made products taylored to our most faithful friends, the Little Companion was born. It is possible to insert a mesh of fur inside this high quality jewel and surprise your loved ones. As a decorative ornament, it can be fixed to a purse, a rearview mirror, or even your kids' backbacks. What a caring and loving gesture and tribute to be able to keep and carry them with us everyday beyond their life.

     

    So to you Paffen, Sydney, Simbad, and Gaspard who were there to faithfully accompany and support me during the good and the bad times without judgement; if life exists after death, I hope that it has reserved a special place for you all. I promise you one million scratch'n behind the ears when I eventually join you. And note that in my daily life, I carry you with me where ever I go thanks to my Little Companion...with your brothers and sisters still with us today...

     

     

    The Little Companion is available in a nearby retailer or through our website.

    Description :  Keychain, or decorative ornement, it is embellished with a bead made from flower petals. It is possible to preserve an everlasting souvenir of your little companion by showcasing a mesh of his fur, a feather, or even a claw. The housing can be unscrewed by hand and may also be sealed with a drop of glue. Entirely made of stainless steel, the Little Companion is resistant and durable. It can be customized by inserting a number of various charms within the housing.

  7. De Fil en Pétales wins a prestigious award at Val-d’Or’s Chamber of commerce annual gala, les Filons

    Production and transformation award recipient and winner
     
    In a town where mining and forestry rule, who would have thought that a jewelry store which transforms flower petals into beads to produce unique jewelry would be proclaimed winner in the production and transformation category! It was after a noticeable appearance in Dans l'Oeil du Dragon, the French version of Dragon's Den, that De fil en Pétales' (DFP) growth potential literally exploded. DFP decided to step it up and leave behind its comfort zone by going from an "arts and craft" style production to a commercial production. With the help of engineers, DFP developed a unique prototype press that permitted a substantial increase in manufacturing
