The Manufacturing
We have had the same objective since day one: to create high-quality collections through an ethical and responsible process. We are delighted to be able to design high-quality products and guarantee good working conditions. Indeed, we can now provide fair wages to our factory workers so that they can live decently.
"We really respect breaks and working hours. Our employees enjoy working for us and generally live near the factories, making it easy for them to walk to work. Carpooling trips are also organised to help out."
With on average thirty-odd employees, each factory is united by a commitment, both social and family-driven, but also an environmental one. Through a transparent approach, our establishments show environmentally and staff-friendly behaviour. Just like the materials we use, the wood pellet stove (more information below) and the fitting of solar panels on the factory’s roof planned for 2019 in order to insure energy independence, the manufacturers demonstrate growing awareness to environmental concerns.
Throughout the production process, our team carefully supervises each and every manufacturing step in order to perpetuate our workers’ unique know-how. We often pay visits to the cutting, sewing, ironing, textile printing, finishing and labelling workshops to ensure quality control and substantial compliance with the more demanding standards. In order to reduce their carbon footprint, the factories have carried out ambitious equipment upgrades.

Indeed, they have turned their attention to modernisation through the installation of combustion such as wood pellet stoves, deemed a technical, economical and ecological challenge. Regarded as an eco-friendly and renewable energy, wooden pellets, or small cylindrical combustible sticks made of sawdust (with no chemical products or additives), offer an ecological solution with a low impact on the environment. Indeed, stoves and boilers that use wood pellets have low emission, and the CO2 emitted during combustion is absorbed by the trees.
Some machines are even equipped with mini, energy-saving batteries, and we are looking into installing solar panels on the factory roofs in order to turn all our factories to on-site energy consumption.
