For 17 years a seamstress in Île Rousse, having honed her skills in Bordeaux's Golden Square, Valérie crafts a variety of women's clothing. She is particularly known for recycling fabrics brought to her, breathing new life into them as fresh garments. She also performs alterations and additions to your existing attire.

A Fashion Designer and Seamstress in Balagne

Valérie Pacheu - Valisula

Valérie Pacheu has been a seamstress specializing in alterations since 2006, located at No. 5 Louis Philippe Street in Île Rousse. Originally from Bordeaux and having worked in haute couture, she has always been drawn to this profession which fuels her passion and provides her with a freedom she holds dear. Having earned numerous qualifications in the field (CAP, BEP, Bac Pro and BTS), Valérie cut her teeth in fashion at Bordeaux's Golden Square. Feeling the need for a lifestyle change, she moved to Corsica and worked in the hotel industry without ever leaving sewing behind. The praise she received for her daily wear creations motivated her to open her own sewing studio, which she did 17 years ago.

Preference for Phone or Text

Due to limited internet connectivity and a lack of familiarity with her email inbox, Valérie encourages you to contact her preferably by text or phone.

Clothing Recycling

New from the Old

Valisula reworks fabric in every seam, carrying forward an innovative idea: clothing recycling. Instead of using new fabric, you can bring in clothes you no longer wear for Valérie to repurpose the material. Whether it's customization, transformation, alterations, or creating entirely new pieces, everything is handmade. For instance, you might find hand-sewn purse straps braided together, with no hint that they originated from an old t-shirt.

Reupholstering Sofas, Wedding Decor, Car Seats

Valérie enjoys pleasing her customers by occasionally branching out from her regular work to accommodate requests. This flexibility has led her to undertake projects such as restoring armchairs, sofas, even car seats, or crafting fabric to dress wedding venues.

Transformations, Makeovers

The principle upheld by Valisula's workshop is creating new from old. It's not brand new—you can transform, shorten, puff up a sleeve. Displaying a sense of psychology and a touch of physiognomy, Valérie will strive to align your clothing with your personality. Driven by her work's passion, which she shares on Facebook—some of her creations are even worn by model Carole Consalvi she sees her victory in the idea of seeing the piece reborn anew.
