A responsible approach for a sustainable fashion
A relationship of confidence has been established for over 10 years between the Paris team and the Portuguese craftsmen who dedicate their skills to the brand. Each of our family-run workshops functions on a humain scale while protecting its employees and validating their well-being on an everyday basis. We share the same vision to create responsible, high-quality products.
A short circuit
to limit our carbon footprint
We rely on a short production circuit and our materials come only from local or nearby suppliers to limit greenhouse gas emissions as much as possible. Our logistical center is based in São João da Madeira, thus our factories need only travel a few kilometers to make their deliveries. We then deliver to all our retailers by truck to avoid creating a transit hub in France. Thus we reduce our environmental impact when we ship our products.
By committing ourselves to the A Tree for You association, we invite our clients to support reforestation projects everywhere in the world by making a donation when they place an order. We match the amount of each donation received.
With complete transparency, the A Tree for You association links donors and tree-planting projects around the globe.To know more...
We do not use plastic in our packagings. Our shoe boxes, shipping boxes and tissue paper are made in paper from FSC-certified, sustainably managed forests. This system requires guaranteeing the legality of a forests utilization, proves the absence of links to deforestation, supports sustainable management and helps conserve biodiversity.
a natural material
Leather is a by-product of the food industry so reusing animal skins helps avoid waste. We work with tanneries who get their skins from French, English and Italian suppliers who assure that they respect excellent farming conditions.
Our leathers are selected exclusively from certified European LWG (Leather Working Group) tanneries in Italy, Spain, Portugal and Germany. This certification assures that they respect European regulatory standards and set up advanced practices to help protect the environment.
All the smooth leathers used in our leathergoods have been vegetable tanned and we continue to develop this natural procedure. This ethical, sustainable tanning method uses tannins found in bark, leaves, pits or even plant sap, respects the environment, guarantees supple, sturdy leathers and ultimately results in deep, nuanced tones.
To make our rubber soles, we work with the supplier Bolflex who, for over 20 years, has made a commitment to reducing its environmental footprint. In the last few years, it has reduced by half the waste created when producing shoe soles thanks to the development of innovative, high-performing rubber injection machines and it also uses recycled rubber. Thus today our soles are made 70% of recycled rubber and 30% of natural hevea.
