MANIFESTO

In an uncertain world, it takes courage to be optimistic.​

It takes strength not to feel powerless regarding the stakes we are facing. ​

A conviction that it is always possible to do better, ​

That it is possible to collectively meet the challenges of our planet, by setting ambitious goals.​


An energy that drives us to transform ourselves on social and environmental issues.



Bringing alongside us our partners and our sector. ​

A joy of living, which turns each progress into a reason to celebrate.​

Whether it is significantly increasing the circularity of our garments, giving them many lives, ​


Reducing our carbon footprint, helping to preserve ecosystems and water,​

Rethinking the culture of the lands which give birth to our materials, ​


Understanding and acting on our manufacturing chains to make them more virtuous, ​


Choosing materials that are less impactful for humans, nature and animals, ​


Supporting women in different areas that are dear to us, such as entrepreneurship, education or health, ​
