To be comfortable with our cleats and aligned with our values, we only offer fair trade textiles, made from organic and synthetic materials for better respect for nature.
We made the strong choice to work only with actors respecting these specifications and to assume higher production costs consequently.
To do this, we have integrated the concept of sustainability into everything we do and we make well-considered decisions about who we work with, how we work and the materials we use. If we make the difference, it is also because we respect our commitment at each stage of our supply chain, we build long-term relationships with our factories and partner suppliers and we fuel an innovative corporate culture.
It is for this reason that:
> All our products are made of GOTS certified organic cotton.
We work closely with our suppliers to source only the best raw materials, grown or produced in a way that does not harm people, animals and the environment. We only use 100% GOTS certified organic cotton from India, recycled polyester from China and other sustainable materials such as Modal®.
Our supply chain is certified by different independent bodies and meets different standards. Each of these certifications demonstrates that we strive to develop sound and greener environmental practices at every stage of the production process.
Our supplier works closely with Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) and supports their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) approach to keeping workers safe. A number of mechanisms are also in place to ensure decent working conditions, such as an internal Code of Conduct, monthly reports and daily visits to our partner factories.
> All designs are embroidered and printed by a French atelier using eco-responsible printing techniques.
All the designs in our collections are conceived, designed, produced and printed from a workshop located in Gironde, France. This workshop has more than 20 years of experience in this field and relies on a French printer recognized for its eco-responsible commitment.
- Waterless prints:
Water pollution is the first environmental risk factor linked to the textile industry. In concrete terms, all the water used by the textile and dyeing industry is enough to completely fill the Mediterranean in just two years. It's clearly dizzying and it's this type of alert that pushes us to act responsibly.
It is for this reason that we wanted to work with a workshop located in Bordeaux that only works with a modern and responsible printer. This printer has turned to digital printing to contribute on its own scale to reducing its environmental impact.To this end, they have integrated a 100% waterless process into each printing system produced. This means that no pre-treatment, spraying or washing is required.
- Neopigment inks:
The inks used are NeoPigment™ aqueous inks. They are totally purified of heavy metals, formaldehydes and alkylphenol ethoxylates, and therefore are non-toxic, non-hazardous and 100% biodegradable. As an integral part of the waterless printing system, biodegradable inks are the ones used by our printer to offer you the most ecological printing solution on the market.
Environmental protection is no longer just a trend. It requires concrete actions. It is clearly part of the overall strategy of our printer since day one. In particular, they follow very closely new research and public campaigns devoted to the environmental impact of textile printing and dyeing factories. Thanks to continuous innovation and unfailing self-sacrifice, our printer not only aims to meet standards but above all to exceed them.
- Safe Products:
Like many companies involved in the textile supply chain, we have chosen to work proactively to eliminate all restricted substances. Considered safe, nods products can be marketed anywhere in the world.
