SEVENLIE, A FRENCH BRAND
MADE IN FRANCE AND SUSTAINABLE APPROACH
“More than a wish or a trend it is a personal commitment to offer you clothes and accessories imagined and made in France. All the products are produced in qualitative materials, the respect of human beings and our environment. The creation of the french brand Sevenlie is founded on the will of sharing my passion for good products and to relate it to trend and the preservation of our planet.”
Julie, Founder and CEO at Sevenlie
A SHORT STORY
FROM WHERE TO START ?
It is the passion for clothes, beautiful things, their history and their mix in scene which directed my choices post graduation.
In 2008, I joined the Mod’Art International school until the Master’s degree, then the INSEEC Paris in Master 2. This course is strewn with experiences of internship, meetings, and learning before directing me to the position of product manager merchandiser. It’s a role of conductor whose mission is to assist the imagination of designers by giving life to their creations and enhancing them in a collection. I had the opportunity to evolve within beautiful French brands on various typologies of products; women’s fashion, men’s fashion, lingerie, …
I have been aware of environmental issues for a long time and I have at heart to convey ethical, sustainable and ecological values. A majority of the actors of the sector are sensitive to these subjects. However, historical development processes, logistic and economic issues are slow to change. So why not start from the beginning by creating my own brand? Let me introduce you to Sevenlie.
SEVENLIE is the translation of a conviction that we can do things in a different way.
Thus, are we 100% green ? Honestly no, because to be perfect we should stop any production and consommation. We can not pretend to do fashion articles and be irreproachable at the same time. BUT, we can limit the turnover, the waist, and pollution by offering durable and locally produced clothes. We can also organize their second life. There is a lot to do to limit out impact on the planet.
WHAT IS BEHIND SEVENLIE’S LABEL
“A company often looks like to people who run it. Sevenlie is the result of past and current thoughts from my years as a product manager to my new role of entrepreneur. I have put my beliefs as a starting point of the brand development.”
MATERIALS AND COMPONENTS
The choice of materials is an essential step in the constitution of an eco-responsible fashion brand. There are three main categories of materials, each with their own advantages and disadvantages: natural materials, artificial materials and petrochemical materials. In our collections we use natural and artificial eco-certified materials as well as some recycled polyester supplies.
HOW TO CERTIFY A SUSTAINABLE APPROACH?
Des labels permettent d’assurer que les matières utilisées répondent à certains engagements éthiques et écologiques :
GOTS is the highest certification for cotton. This label ensures the organic character of the cotton from the plantation to its transformation as well as the ethical aspect of the whole chain.
Oeko-Tex Standard 100 controls the absence of harmful chemical substances
FSC certifies the sustainable management of forests
