OUR ACTIONS AND COMMITMENTS FOR A MORE SUSTAINABLE WORLD
"From the beginning, we have been guided by the desire to create a Parisian-inspired wardrobe, composed of pieces that can be revisited season after season, transcend time and tell a unique story.
Our goal: make sustainable creations that respect our planet and its people. Creations that outlive fleeting trends and suit (almost) every season; creations made in the finest materials, chosen for their opulence and longevity. We know the path to complete sustainability is long and challenging. We must, therefore, make, redo, try and learn from our mistakes.
Through our collections- especially our Essentials- we have made sustainability an important focus, by choosing natural materials, vegetable-tanned leather and creating a strong relationship with our ateliers to avoid over-production and to always ensure the highest quality. This is only the beginning.
95% of our pieces are handcrafted in our European ateliers.
We have always chosen our ateliers for their expertise and exceptional savoir-faire, and we always will. Italian-spun wool, traditional English tweed and Japenese denim…
Selected for their exceptional savoir-faire, our ateliers are regularly audited to ensure they respect our ethics and high standards (audits BSCI, SMETA, ICS ou WCA).
We are proud of the strong relationship we have formed with our long-standing partners over the years, through sound communication and trust. The faces behind our creations include Luis and Ana in Portugal, Paolo in Italy and Sylvain in Britain.
Every season, we work tirelessly to bring our pieces to life in nearly all-natural materials that respect the environment; we work closely with independent organizations to ensure this.
71% of pieces in our Essentials collection are made in organic cotton.
63% of our Essential sweaters are made in Mulesing Free Mérino wool.
100% of our small leather pieces are created with vegetable-tanned leather.
We intend to go even further for our future collections, exceding our standards to create high-quality pieces in eco-friendly materials, at a fair and accessible price.
For us, the made how is more important than the made in, as we sought out the world’s best ateliers to create our sustainable and quality pieces.
Octobre is a brand based on responsible stock volumes, in keeping with a lean production model. We aim for no overproduction & fair, accessible prices all year round.
On the 21st of every month, 10% of October’s profits and 100% of the proceeds from a dedicated ‘solidarity’ piece, are donated to projects that fund concrete actions in favour of access to education, culture & equal opportunities for children around the world. Already, Sézane and Octobre have donated nearly 3 million euros.
