PROMOTING FRENCH KNOW-HOW 🇫🇷
All Pipou clothing is entirely designed, knitted, made and packaged in France.
It was important for us to know our partners and to promote their exceptional know-how, a guarantee of impeccable quality, which allows us to produce clothes that last over time. The clothes for your little wolves are woven in Moreuil and Charlieu and made in Capbreton and Verdalle by fantastic teams that we know well and who are extremely proud to see their work worn so well!
Producing locally also allows us to considerably reduce transport and therefore the carbon footprint of our clothes!
PROTECT THE PLANET...
And limit our impact on the environment as much as possible. 🌍
In order to preserve natural resources, we are very careful in choosing the materials we use and we work as much as possible with recycled materials . This allows us to participate in limiting waste while preserving the planet's virgin resources.
When we know that in Europe, for 5 million tonnes of textiles placed on the market each year, 4 million are thrown away, sometimes in new condition, without being recycled*, it is urgent that things move!
To last over time and not be thrown away once fashion has passed, we imagine minimalist, timeless and durable clothing. We therefore favored simple, plain pieces, in soft colors and of good quality. Because the longer a garment lives, the lower its environmental impact .
...by consigning one's clothing
It is because Pipou children's clothing is particularly durable that we offer them a second life by consigning them. Pipou therefore has a second-hand offer, so that a piece of clothing worn can have several lives!
GUARANTEE TOTAL TRANSPARENCY
Transparency in fashion requires the materials used but also respect for workers' rights.
The fashion industry is one of the leading players in modern slavery in the world today, this cannot continue!
Choosing to produce French also means ensuring that all fundamental rights will be respected and that each actor in the production chain is properly remunerated.
So producing French is more expensive, we're not going to lie to you, but it's a choice that we decided to make because we think it's our duty to make things happen.
PRESERVE THE HEALTH OF OUR CHILDREN
Health is essential and must be preserved, especially that of our little wolves. To ensure this, we only use recycled yarns certified OEKO-TEX standard 100 so that no toxic materials or chemicals enter their manufacturing process .
The dyes used are also OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified when they are not natural.
