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).
