HÉRITAGE of ADVENTURE and ORGANIC
We adapt the shapes inherited from DAD'S ADVENTURER GRANDPA, son of a pioneering turn-of-the-century ORGANIC FARMER.
Eugène Le Moult : a four-page graphic short story on his adventures in TINTIN of 24 May 1956.
By working to heritage materials, we source from the original COTTON fields and produce long-lasting clothes that are 99.9% BIODEGRADABLE¹.
By working to heritage techniques, we support DESCENDANTS of the original artisans, as weavers, printers, embroiderers and stitchers.
By working to heritage sources, our cotton fields, weaving and stitching are in the same original region, requiring a MINIMUM of transportation. Our atelier only produces small quantities, with no dead stock.
¹ 100% cotton and mother-of-pearl buttons, we're just pragmatically using robust nylon thread for seams...
EUGÈNE LE MOULT, BUTTERFLY-HUNTER, 1882-1965
As a wealthy ADVENTURER, EUGÈNE LE MOULT had his clothes tailored in the 1920s-1940s for the 28 days on SAIL- or STEAM-BOATS from France to equatorial French Guiana and then nights in the JUNGLE.
Due to its remoteness and man-eating wildlife, Guiana was the world's most famous maximum-security prison and Eugène was sharing tents with France's most dangerous men.
