NEGATIVE: Use of Virgin Polyester
At JF we work hard to avoid taking products onboard which use virgin polyester, and when our designers choose this as a raw material, we investigate why to make sure we can vouch for their choices. Here, the virgin polyester is used as a means to strengthen parts of the product which is more prone to wear and tear. Quality and longevity is such an important part of the design, so here we can accept this choice.
Focus on quality and commitment to improve practices
Fete Imperiale are committed to continuously improve their production chain, from choices of fabrics to production partners and suppliers. This means that synthetics are sometimes chosen as a means to keep the quality high even longer, as long as a natural or recycled counterpart doesn’t exist in the same the characteristics . As they each season do their research, they will however always look for the best alternative when it comes to ALL levels and details of each product, and as the range of ethical alternatives grow, Fete Imperiale are committed to making the changes they can towards an even better production.
Quality focused and low volume production
