On the occasion of Valentine's Day, we have chosen to present to you our teams' 6 favorite eco-responsible brands. In addition to that, we have prepared a surprise for you in this article.
Our favorite brands
Chou² - favorites for all tastes
Chou² is a brand of colorful and upcycled accessories made from fabrics from major brands.
Bright silk scrunchies and velvet bananas have one thing in common: they are made in France in integration workshops.
We start from this simple observation : fashion is beautiful. Except that we already produce twice as much clothing as 15 years ago. years... and therefore textile waste. And all this, very far from home. Each new clothing collection produced generates end of rolls, which pile up. In the Rhône Alpes region alone, there are 180 km of fabrics to be recycled.
Our answer ? Recycling these abandoned fabrics into fresh, colorful fashion accessories with a low environmental impact. “ One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.”
Who is behind the brand? Victoria, a big fan of fashion, but not of its impact. The solution I found to buy fewer clothes is accessories. They allow you to enhance, sometimes even transform a look that you know well, and as a result you get less tired of it!
Maison Izard - they have sublimated the wool of the Pyrenees
Maison Izard is a young Pau brand of clothing and accessories made from Pyrenees wool committed to promoting local resources and know-how.
The brand seeks above all to promote its local treasure, wool from the Pyrenees, a local raw material today neglected, but oh so virtuous, by working with local players, located in the South-West of France and labeled Heritage Company Vivant or France Terre Textile. Through authentic and timeless products, with a touch of modernity, the brand offers a whole universe around Pyrenees wool. All products have a history, a link with the Pyrenees and are part of a local and environmental logic by taking into account, for each product, the materials used, its characteristics, its impact and its use.
