La Couserie Créative is a familial business. The story began in 1907 in Mazamet (Tarn 81) where buttons were sold at the same time as anchovies !
The first real haberdashery shop opened in 1967, also in Mazamet, founded by Josy and Yves IMART. Motivated and determined, they buy a new shop in Narbonne in 1993, and then one more in Perpignan in 1994.
Today, we (Grégory, Patrice and Corinne) manage the company, with the help of our parents. We share our time managing the two shops, and the mail order selling thanks to our web site made in 2004 and the exhibitions (about 7-10 per year).
With 100 m² in Narbonne, and 150 m² in Perpignan, we have on stock all the basic haberdashery and the knitting wool, and also an area for embroidery and an other area for quilting.
