ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY

We undertake to work only with natural fibers. We carefully select our materials according to one principle: to minimise their ecological footprint. Our approach consist of choosing materials that use the least amount of natural resources, whose fiber has been grown organically and wood has come from sustainably managed forests.

Thanks to dyeing using “low impact dyes” (which do not contain any heavy metals or other toxic products) and working with suppliers who recycle, minimise waste and promote the use of alternative energy sources, we cut our consumption of water and energy to a maximum and minimise the pollution of air, water and soils.

EUROPEAN RAW MATERIALS

Our materials originate in Europe, meaning that the fiber is cultivated, transformed and dyed there, and our buttons are made of French boxwood. By buying raw materials whose origin is the closest to Switzerland, we reduce carbon emissions to a maximum: the distance between our various suppliers and our workshop is no more than 1600 km.

The fabrics beyond our creations are as sustainable as they are comfortable and they do not contain elastane or other blended synthetic fiber. In a diehard spirit, we do not use zip fasteners in our styles but only natural buttons made of French boxwood. Our objective? To manufacture, wear and recycle our clothes whilst minimizing their polluting impact on the environment and their harmful impact on our health.

CERTIFICATIONS

Our creations in linen and hemp benefit from GOTS certification. It is one of the two references in matters of organic fabric with the Oeko-Tex 100 certification. It guarantees responsible manufacturing from the social and environmental point of view, and the organic quality of the textiles from the harvesting of the raw materials through to the finished product, including the transformation and dyeing process. To know more about this label, you can visit their website: www.global-standard.org.

Our creations in Tencel® cannot receive GOTS certification since the label does not consider Tencel® to be an organic fabric although the manufacturing process is extremely sustainable and the fiber comes from forest plantations managed durably. The dyes used to dye our Tencel® have Oeko-Tex 100 certification.

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Our clothes are made by people who are passionate about their profession and irreproachable regarding quality. We have forged strong ties with them and attach great importance to the quality of life of those involved in the production of our products.

By selecting partners and suppliers sharing common ethics, our creations are produced in total compliance with regulations on working conditions. Our partners thus benefit from total workplace safety, remuneration matching their know-how, reasonable working hours, a compensation for overtime work and the respect of current standards in matters of labour law.

FRENCH MANUFACTURE

Our creations are designed in Lausanne (Switzerland) and the dressmaking is made by two women, Laurie and Nath, in their workshop in Marcollin, near Lyon (France). We have chosen France as place of production in order to favor a local distribution network and to promote a know-how of excellence. We partnered with a human-sized workshop located as close as possible to our headquarters. Thus our models are designed within a radius of 190 km. In addition to reducing our carbon footprint, less transportation allows us to boost local channels and sustainably develop regions close to us.

TRANSPARENCY AND TRACEABILITY

In our view, the relationship of trust with our clients is reinforced by a desire for absolute transparency. As a committed brand, it is our role to inform our community about our mission, our approach and our challenges. Our creations no longer hold any secrets for you, as much on the origin of raw materials as on each step of the manufacturing process, right down to the actual cost of your purchase.

Moreover, we undertake to offer clothes that benefit from full traceability. We therefore do our best to work with partners who guarantee the traceability of all the products with which they supply us, from the origin of the fiber or wood through to the finished product used for our production. The entire value chain is under control so that you can know from where exactly your clothes come and their true cost.
