Our Sustainable Values
We believe in clothing that helps you make empowering shopping choices - essentials that embody your convictions, respect your integrity and enhance your style. Let’s infuse more beauty into the clothes we wear by adding more beauty into how our clothes are produced.
Low Impact Fabrics
We work with premium fabrics made from natural, botanical and innovative eco-fibres. These fibres consume fewer natural resources and result in less air, water and soil pollution. Our fabrics include limited or no use of hazardous substances, such as herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers or GMOs, and are free of harsh chemicals that could be harmful to your skin. Discover our fabrics.
We work exclusively with factories in France and abroad that pay a living wage, respect employee rights and offer safe working conditions. See inside our factories.
Keeping it Local
As much as possible we choose to produce our designs in the same regions where our raw materials originate. Silks from China, alpaca from Peru - when it comes to working fibres into beautiful products, the local artisans are the experts. And we want these communities to realise the full economic benefits of production by manufacturing our products from start to finish.
All of our shipping boxes, envelopes and cards are made from post-consumer recycled materials, and paper products certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Whenever we can we also use re-usable packaging. Our totes and drawstring bags are made in India from GOTS-certified organic cotton.
We're working to ship your orders as efficiently as possible, with a low environmental impact. French and international orders are proudly shipped using Colissimo, a CO2 neutral French courier service. Colissimo carbon off-sets all of their deliveries.
Progress, Not Perfection
When we launched Les Sublimes, we created our 10 commandments of ethical production. As a responsible company, we're continuously working to make our young brand more sustainable. The idea is not to be perfect, but to do our best, be transparent about our products and our progress, and to always strive for improvement.
A Social Enterprise
Les Sublimes exists to demonstrate that design, thoughtfulness and sustainability can co-exist in our shopping choices. We know that a for-profit business with purpose can change people’s lives. Our business model supports non-exploitative and gainful employment, providing good jobs in our home country of France and throughout our supply chain around the world. Good jobs lift families out of the cycle of poverty. They send children to school and pay medical bills. Good jobs create permanent solutions. Every time you shop Les Sublimes, you demand to see a new world. A world of beauty, mutual respect and integrity. That is what it means to be Sublimes.
