Our Values: People and Sustainability

Our factories are based in the heart of the French forests that we strive to preserve. We use the warmth generated by our weaving machines to heat our offices. The bee hives living on our linen processing site are a living-proof of the quality of our environment.

Our own wastewater treatment plant releases clean water into local rivers. Our teams recycle all reusable materials and are fully trained to minimize waste. Our own water turbines produce part of the electricity used for our operations. Our company is committed to keeping jobs in the countryside of France and to promote our regional savoir faire around the world. We created a 100% plant based laundry detergent to help our customers and employees preserve the environment as well.
