Our expertise lies in making beautiful dresses from high-quality fabrics, in an environmentally friendly and innovative way. With this in mind, we maintain high standards for the quality of our products and accessories, which can be included in a thoughtful consumption model concerning the environmental and social impact of the clothes you buy. Our traceability system enables us to follow the product's journey, offering transparent visibility on the composition and production process of our garments. This transparency is part of our mission to raise awareness of the textile value chain and defend ethical and circular fashion practices.
POUPETTE ST BARTH X RENOON
For us, transparency and traceability are an integral part of our sustainability approach, which is constantly evolving as part of our initiatives. Partnering with Renoon was a crucial step in achieving this, as their tools facilitate the life-cycle assessment of our products and ensure supply chain compliance, which is essential for communicating these details to our stakeholders.
Our commitment to this path began in 2022 with an internal assessment to understand our environmental footprint. Using Renoon's tools, we can measure carbon emissions, energy use, water consumption and land use at all stages of our supply.
As a brand, we value every role within our textile and apparel supply chain, recognizing their contributions to our day-to-day operations, which have kept our business running to this day. Our in-house manufacturing plays an important role in enhancing the transparency of our brand. With control in our own hands, we have made most of our supply chain easily traceable.
We are also committed to raising the environmental performance standards of our supply chain. This commitment is reflected in the selection and evaluation of suppliers to ensure compliance with local regulations. Our supplier code of conduct and supplier evaluation form are evidence of this. They include six key points: business ethics, legislation, labor standards, health and safety, suppliers' environmental responsibilities, supplier diversity, equity and inclusion. Failure to comply with these points will result in penalties, up to and including immediate withdrawal from our supply chain.
OUR WHOLESALE CLIENTS
Together with our wholesale and retail partners, we strive to foster a more transparent industry by prioritizing traceability in our supply chain. This joint effort gives our customers access to comprehensive information on the journey of our products. As part of these close collaborations, we actively strive to provide clear information on the material impact of our products and packaging.
In addition to this transparency, we work with our partners on a make-to-order production system. This means that we only manufacture to customer specifications, to avoid wasteful overproduction.
Following our product lifecycle analysis, carried out with our partner Renoon, we have identified the stages of our supply chain most at risk in terms of carbon emissions. Fabric production, which includes weaving, knitting and fabric finishing processes such as dyeing and printing, presents the highest risk. This is followed by the transportation of goods from upstream sources to our manufacturing facilities in Indonesia.
As a result of this study, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and addressing climate risks throughout our value chain. We are implementing a sustainability framework that is aligned with the French Accord/European Commission and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), giving us clear guidance on how to reduce emissions.
