Protecting yourself from the rain is good, but doing it while preserving the planet is better.
For the Flotte, we strive to source (research and select) environmentally friendly raw materials to manufacture our collections. It's all well and good to say it, you will think. But how to believe it? For this, the textile industry is expanding several environmental labels that you can find on our labels.
The objective: to transform our household waste into deposit of raw material with high added value.
Quality, technique and eco-responsibility are the key words
For the Flotte, the selection of materials is at the heart of each development. The credo: use recycled materials to pollute less.
From the second collection, the brand invested in this direction by creating a line with fabrics 100% recycled and certified. The desire to reuse what already exists. The idea of circular fashion will remain in the development of each of our collections.
In order to limit CO2 emissions during transport, we favor the delivery of our products by boat rather than by plane. We are also examining the railway track, which would allow us to reduce CO4 emissions by 2 times compared to the boat and by 20 times compared to the plane.
The development of our pieces is done with care in our Parisian offices. A close-knit team of stylists, salespeople and marketers work daily to create ever more colorful and playful collections.
The manufacture of our parts requires a particular technicality and know-how that cannot be found elsewhere. This is why we work with partners in Asia because it is today in this region of the world that we find the most important means of production, and which meet our specifications.
Manufacturing is carried out in a factory specializing in the manufacture of outerwear, which is located in the Zhejiang region of China, where we control the production chain. Our partner factory is BSCI certified, a label that guarantees healthy and fair working conditions.
