Thanks to our 29 partner workshops, all our garments are made in France.
Often called Living Heritage Company and/or Guaranteed French Origin, their know-how ensures local and dedicated production for the benefit of all.
The regional and exceptional know-how of the French textile industry is thus perpetuated through 300 indirect jobs dedicated to the manufacture of sustainable clothing.
This ecosystem is much more than a partnership of companies: growers, breeders, suppliers of materials and accessories, spinning mills, distributors and many others form a community whose lives are linked and whose vision is shared.

By moving production locally and developing eco-friendly materials,
Le Slip Français is working to help and empower an ecosystem that has been severely hit for 50 years.
From the merino wool produced on the Valensole plateaus to the lace made in Caudry, via swimsuits made from new recycled materials manufactured at the Portes du Coglais, it is the entire French textile industry which, together, is inventing a local manufacture of the future.
If this short circuit operation and commitment to quality are not obvious to everyone, the ambition of Le Slip Français is precisely to show that this model can be sustainable.
By focusing on the products and the people who make them, we are choosing to devote our largest expense to labor, in this case 10 times more than if we were manufacturing on the other side of the world.
Because social protection and skills development are part of the French spirit that drives us, and being fair does not prevent us from building an industrial, competitive and profitable model.
is it worth the cost?
Local manufacturing is a commitment that makes sense in a long-term vision.
Today, it remains impossible to compete with the prices that fast fashion imposes by exploiting the human and environmental resources of developing countries.
But thanks to the growing awareness of consumers, our model, which is aware of the stakes for all the players in the chain, is gradually gaining ground with more and more companies.
This margin, which the company manages to free up, makes it possible to invest in research and development of new, more environmentally friendly materials.
It also makes it possible to support local players, to encourage initiatives for the production of raw materials in our regions, and to prevent linen or wool, for example, from being exported at a lower cost.
Finally, after decades of relocation, our ambition is not to safeguard an industry of the past, but to innovate and invent the industry of the future by modernising manufacturing tools and techniques, for example through the Moncoton project, which develops new recycling techniques.
Thanks to the digital and technological innovations of the last few years, local clothing is finding a new lease of life, to change fashion and change the world.
