reconcile ethics & aesthetics
We believe ethics and aesthetics are not mutually exclusive. Making timeless, authentic, simple beautiful pieces whilst ensuring we respect all social and environmental aspects of the production process. We believe in forever and we want you to wear our pieces for years to come. That’s why we partner with the best ateliers knitting high-quality pieces and source the finest materials for our timeless products.
Better & fewer
We believe in fewer things made in a better way. We believe in mindful, careful and slow consumption. In reducing waste, in creating thoughtful, well-designed, and long-lasting garments so you buy fewer of them. We believe our planet deserves better. Less waste and pollution. That’s why we create seasonless pieces design down to its true essence, removing anything that is nonessential and to discourage the disposable view of clothing. Away from the tyranny of seasons, we offer editions which are meant to stand the test of time and not purely ephemeral collections. Outliving fast fads, seasonal trends and ephemeral collection to create timeless editions.
Social & environmental awareness
We believe in social and environmental consciousness. We put the person behind every garment we make at the centre-stage and to truly hero all our partners. We believe in mutual respect and trustful relationships. By regularly visiting our skilled manufacturers we are able to closely support their work. We can ensure controlled working standards in all our factories since we only collaborate with local suppliers in Spain. The proximity of our suppliers and the traceability of all the components allow us to limit our ecological footprint. We work exclusively with raw materials that respect both the environment and our health.
We believe in local expertise because we strive to give pride of place to a sustainable and thoughtful consumption, we attach the greatest importance to our manufacturing conditions. All our pieces are knitted in accordance with a local production not only to limit our ecological footprint, but also to build personalised and lasting relationships with each of our partners.
We believe in small editions. Well beyond its primary purpose, a piece of clothing is above all a means of personal expression, the vector of our own identity, the expression of a particular and personal story, carrying an ethos that allows everyone to surpass their individuality and personality.
With this in mind, we wanted to focus our offer on a few pieces produced in small editions, and each hand-numbered to reinject a little meaning and a lot of individuality in these times of homogeneity.
Last but not least we believe in preserving local know how of our local craftsmen. We launched L'Envers in 2015 with the ambition to create simple, timeless clothes that do not damage the planet. The idea of an ethical, sustainable and transparent brand. And a human brand that gives pride of place to the artisans who knit each of our pieces. Through each item, we tell their story. It is a true relationship of mutual trust and proximity that we have built with them.
Our desire is to continue to grow by their side, and help preserve their know-how and maintain local knitting traditions. That's why in March 2019 we launched a crowdfunding campaign to equip them with more powerful tools. We’ve exceeded our goals and financed the purchase of a new knitting machine.
