PREMIER VISION, PARIS

 

1. We make the effort to use excess designer fabrics for at least 80% of our production. We do search and use natural, high-tech and green materials made by the best Italian factories for the best Italian designers.

2. In order to reduce our negative environmental impact, we have made a major change to our production process. Investing in technology, we have brought the embroidery process in our atelier and thus have insured minimal wastage of fabric and thread.

3. Also, making the embroidery in the atelier, it will require less courier van transport then before.

4.We use the embroidery threads of Madeira, a winner of The Sustainability Award.

 5. Finally, even the smallest fabric remnants left after the cutting and the embroidery process are taken to H&M where they will be reused or recycled.

6. We design and produce limited edition collections.

7. We support the 'BUY LESS' movement by offering timeless high quality designs that can be worn for long periods of time and by few generations.
