Bateau Bateau was born in 2017 out of a desire to focus on ecological and sustainable products. I started by creating grow with me clothing for children, in order to offer parents quality clothing, handmade in Quebec, that could be worn for a long time.

In the summer of 2018, I developed a new product, unique in the world, which today is the primary raison d’être of Bateau Bateau: sets of washable tissues of unequaled softness, presented in a pretty box with a basket to toss them in until the next washing. All to promote ease of use, which doesn’t disrupt our lifestyle too much.

Indeed, after numerous tests to find the perfect tissue material, the count, the size, and the box and basket have all been designed to be as similar as possible to how we use disposable tissues. In keeping with this, I made the decision not to hem or overlock the edges of the tissues, both for ecologoical and economical reasons, and to keep a look comparable to the disposable tissues to which we are accustomed.

Just days after launching these sets on the market, there was already demand for pouches for carrying the tissues; a product added to Bateau Bateau’s lineup a few months later. Today, more than 70,000 of our tissues have been sold, and our products can be found in myriad zero-waste boutiques and supermarkets throughout Quebec.


My name is Marie-Ève and I’m behind Bateau Bateau. You might see my signature (M.eve) in more places than on the Bateau Bateau packaging. You might also see it on the back of several games from Randolph, as Linkto. And although I may not have signed them, I have also worked in behind the scenes on several other games! Randolph is also my family. I was there for its birth, and I have watched it grow, just like Bateau Bateau, and I am proud to be part of it. So I continue to work on publishing games at Randolph part time, and I am fortunate to be able to have these two enterprises at the heart of my life! That’s it for my professional side. I must also tell you that I have two other little projects whose births I saw in 2015 and 2016, an incredible boy and an extraordinary girl to whom I want to offer all the love they deserve, and all of the time remaining in my day.
