A COMMITMENT THAT ECHOES OUR ENVIRONMENT
Created in the French Alps
Being surrounded by the snow-capped mountains that plunge into the waters of Lake Annecy, we have always been aware of the need to protect our beautiful planet.
This is a commitment which inspires us and drives us forward.
The route to this ambitious target requires a strong focus. And we will not be happy with our progress until we achieve our final goal. We will always speak to you with total transparency and hope that you will join us on this difficult, steep, yet beautiful path!
TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION
The carbon footprint assessment we conducted in 2021 revealed that the fabrics and materials we use represent on average 68% of our carbon footprint*. This is why we have made them our priority.
A CONSIDERED CHOICE OF MATERIALS
Our feather and down products are certified RDS® - Responsible Down Standard. This is a global certification that aims to ensure the humane treatment of animals and the traceability of feathers and down in the supply chain.
In addition, we plan to introduce certified RWS® wools - Responsible Wool Standard - starting with the Fall/Winter 2022 Collection. This is a global certification that aims to ensure the well-being of sheep in the production of wool and its traceability in the supply chain.
We strongly believe in promoting, at a minimum, production without substances that are harmful to the body and the environment. This is why our material certification rate is 72% for the Fall-Winter 2022 Collection.
The majority of our materials are covered by the Oekotex® and Bluesign® certifications. These ones guarantee the harmlessness of the materials concerned as well as our commitment to responsible production.
We reduce our plastic packaging as much as possible. It is now 100% recyclable.
We are also a signatory to the Fashion Pact - a global coalition of brands that set concrete goals to protect the environment.
OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
The sustainability of our products is our primary commitment. We want to design and manufacture timeless, versatile products that our children and grandchildren will still enjoy wearing.
Our priority is to maintain a high level of technical expertise and innovation in our materials so that they last as long as possible. In close collaboration with our Research and Development Department, we have integrated a material test laboratory in our Annecy headquarters to allow us to test the waterproofing, water repellent, mecanical strength, abrasion risk, dimensional stability, color fastness to washing and elasticity of our products.
The longer the life of a product, the lower its impact on our planet. That is why we care about the quality of our products and are committed to repairing them throughout their life cycle to ensure their longevity.
Since January 1st, 2021, we have chosen to extend our initial 2-year warranty to 5 years on a selection of products (ers an extended warranty of 5 years from the date of purchase on selected products).
Whether you visit our stores or our online platform, we are committed to providing you with tailored and accessible care instructions at all times to extend the life of your garment.
