Sylvie Bourgain, creator of Côte à Côte By Sylvie B, wax accessories and interior decoration objects

I am Sylvie, the creator of Côte à Côte By Sylvie B. ​ 


My passion is sewing !


I love working with my hands, imagining and creating objects... ​


My grandmother was a costume designer, I learned to sew with my mother and I have been sewing for so long that you could say I fell into it when I was little !


As a little girl, I already made and imagined dresses and accessories for my dolls.


​ Before, I was a computer engineer: but that was before !


In 2009: I left IT to create my own micro-business:

Why work with Wax fabrics?

🤗I love colorful Wax fabrics! For the power of colors, for the multitudes of patterns, for the joy and cheerfulness they bring... ​


Let me tell you a little story :


I was born in Africa, I spent most of my childhood in Ivory Coast. The shimmering colors and vibrant patterns of wax fabrics are my childhood !

When I left my country of birth to continue my studies in France, I wanted to bring an ethnic and colorful touch to my interior, but in a subtle and balanced way. I wanted to create an atmosphere that reminded me of Africa, while remaining true to my lifestyle in France.


Many people use wax fabrics to make beautiful clothes, but few think about incorporating them into their home decor.


This is how my idea was born ! I decided to create the decorative accessories I wanted myself !


This is how my unique creations were born, combining the authenticity of wax fabrics with a contemporary aesthetic. ​


I pay particular attention to the quality of materials and respect for artisanal techniques, while adding my personal touch to create unique decorative items, both elegant and authentic. ​


My brand highlights the aesthetics, graphic patterns and vibrant colors of wax. ​


Share and transmit :

My accessories and decorative items in wax will send you positive waves thanks to the richness of the colors and patterns of African fabrics. ​

Today, I share my creations with you, so that you can also bring the right touch of good humor and color to your interior. Whether through my cushions with vibrant patterns, my unique tablecloths or my original decorative objects, I am convinced that you will find pieces that will brighten up your interior while respecting your own style ! ​

I transmit to you the joy of living and the sun of Africa🌞, through unique, personalized artisanal creations, with soft and natural materials.


​ By using my creations with vibrant patterns and colors, you will bring a touch of happiness and cheerfulness to your daily life.
