SUSTAINABLE AND FASHIONABLE CLOTHING COLLECTIONS
LARGE BUSINESS CATEGORY
Company: Happy Chic
The product: The Gentle Factory
The Gentle Factory designs, distributes and sells fashionable and responsible clothing online and in the network of Happychic brand stores, thanks to their innovative sourcing. The goal of the project is to provide the longest possible life for all garments. The project is based on the commercialisation of sustainable products using recycled fibres (post consumer and post industrial), organic fibres and local production wherever possible (traceability of the production chain in France and close import). A platform for collaborative services was created and put online to allow customers to exchange, rent or resell the clothes they no longer wear. When the garment is no longer usable, thanks to a partnership with Le Relais, it is collected in stores for recycling.
