THE FASHION REVOLUTION

Three years after the disaster of Rana Plaza in Bangladesh where 1133 people were killed during the collapse of the building where were their clothing workshops, the mobilization remains intact.

To the initiative of the fashion designer Carry SOMERS, the collective FASHION REVOLUTION incites each to consume the fashion differently. This collective believes that fashion can be made in safe, clean and beautiful way. Where creativity, quality, environment and people are valued quality.

As French manufacturer we make a commitment.

Since the 7th of October 2011, Regain is proud to be the first French textile company to obtain the LUCIE label, which makes real its commitment to sustainable development in social, economic and environmental terms in accordance with the ISO 26000 standard.

In our factory, we wanted to obtain the labelling very quickly as it simply reinforced the spirit and the values with which we have always worked.

For us, lovers of the rich green natural heritage of the Midi-Pyrenees, the social and environmental aspects have never been questioned. Since the launch in 1987 of the first French firemen’s pullover, every resource has been preciously employed.

In our company, not a single thread lies around. Pullovers at the end of their lives are recycled and the scraps of raw materials are recovered for a weaver who recycles them into carded thread” Far more than a standard to be respected, LUCIE is our philosophy! Each collaborator is involved and has understood the usefulness of such an initiative given what is at stake in sustainable development.

In a difficult sector, that of the clothing, we are committed as French manufacturer to maintain jobs and to preserve the know-how and the industrial facilities in France.IMG_3302

What means “made in France” for you ?

The manufacture our products in France is a traceability guarantee for the consumer who can follow the various stages of the manufacturing process via a QR code located in the pocket of his jeans. The proximity and transparency are part of our core values: being closer to the people, it responds more readily to their expectations and better understand their motivations. Our customers become our best ambassadors.

According to you what are the advantages, disadvantages and can be difficult to produce in France?

Relocate the entire manufacturing sector has not been easy. 97% of the price of our jeans irrigate the local economy but the metal button and rivets are still produced by our Italian neighbors, lack of maintaining a tricolor expertise in this field. However, produce in France allowed us to reduce the number of contacts between the production process and the end customer. Thanks to this economic model inspired by that of shoe manufacturers in Romans it there’s several decades, our jeans are available at relatively affordable prices (from 89 to 109 euros depending on model).
