We spend a lot of time selecting the products that will accompany you everyday. Our criteria are multiple, but 3 are unwavering:
Made in Not-Far
At least 90% of the products offered come from Europe (EU + UK, Norway, Switzerland), of which 40% from France.
The country of origin is always specified, and refers not to the country of design, but to the country of actual manufacturing.
The remaining 10% come from fair trade, or from unique craftsmanship (especially from Japan).
A beautiful material is first and foremost a natural material, not derived from petrochemicals.
It must be renewable (wood, wool, linen, organic cotton), and if not, easily recyclable (steel, ceramic, cast iron) and sometimes recycled (recycled steel, recycled wool). No plastic, no synthetic fibers.

Makers who really make
More than 70% of our brands and manufacturers have their own production facilities, whether it be a craftsman's workshop or a larger factory.
This is the key to product quality, as any problem could be corrected immediately.
It is also the guarantee of a supply without any intermediary, for products at their fair value.
