YUL began in 2015 with architect and founder Cece's need for a functional yet elegant way to transport large-format drawings. Like many architects and designers, she often carried odd-shaped papers and objects that never fit in traditional bags.
Cece decided to craft a solution for herself. Not knowing how to sew, she used paper, elastic, and a wooden dowel to create a prototype for a bag that could carry Tabloid/A3 paper without forming creases or folds. Her pared-down solution, Enveloppe, evolved into a collection of practical accessories that reflect a quiet ingenuity through size, structure, and versatility.
Each design is tailored to meet the needs of different creative types: architects, designers, artists, photographers, writers, and more.
