To use materials from Europe combines several values: short transport ways, higher transparency and best quality.
We want to support the local economy. As a French brand we would be happy to work only with French suppliers, though this is impossible. Not all materials exist in France as the cork for example.
But we select carefully all suppliers and materials to strict criteria.
Selecting only European materials allows us to control the quality but as well how people work, under which conditions, how they are paid, etc. Further we can check on where materials are coming from. All our suppliers sign a confidentiality agreement as well as a charter about our values. If possible we visit all of them regularly.
We give as detailed information as possible but never the name of a supplier. This is to protect our work as you certainly understand as there are also many other brands out there.
