Our values :

· Respect for people and the planet in relation to production (selection of raw materials used and the quality of products made) and transparency in the distribution chain (ecological / human /local production).
· Valorisation of the know-how and the hand-made (authenticity and originality)
Our vision: together we can move from the "fast fashion" to “Slow Fashion” or “soft Fashion” buying responsibly, re-using instead of throwing, by changing our habits, by consuming locally, ethically, sustainable and recycling.
