We celebrate the Cajun culture

Bonjour, Chere. Ya’ll come on in and visit for a few minutes. I’ll put on a pot of coffee. How have y’all been? It’s been a while since we visited….

Welcome to my home:  The Creative Cajun

My name is Desiree Doucet and I was born & raised in Lafayette, LA. I love my Cajun Culture and I love to make things. I decided to combine these two passions and create items that celebrate our unique culture and remind you of Acadiana.

The first products to hit the market are our Cajun themed soaps. The inspiration for our products comes from my childhood growing up in Lafayette, LA. We’ll feature soaps that celebrate the Mardi Gras season, local universities and cultural traditions in Cajun country.

I founded The Creative Cajun in 2013. As a naturally creative person, I began to dabble in different crafts: sewing, crochet, knitting, textile dyeing and creating soap/natural body products. I enjoyed learning new skills, but it wasn’t long before I’d adapt them and put a Cajun spin on whatever I was making. This is how the idea for The Creative Cajun was born.
