After months of hard work, we are very proud to announce the release of our first Made In France sportswear collection. We’ve gone completely out of our comfort zone, and we hope you like it.
A short circuit production located in the Hauts-de-France region
The raw material, the thread, is first recovered by the Malterre workshop, our partner located in Amiens. This is where the thread is woven, and where the production process of our Made In France sportswear begins. At the same time, our braids and labels are manufactured by our partner workshops in the Lille region.
Once manufactured, all these elements are sent to the Résilience workshop in Roubaix. We are particularly proud to work with this structure, located in the former heart of the French textile cradle, which aims to revive the French textile industry while helping men and women to reintegrate socially. This is where the rolls are cut, the parts are assembled, and our Made In France sportswear finally takes shape.
After being manufactured, the garments are transported to our premises, located just a few steps from the workshop. There they undergo the final stage of the process, printing, before being sent directly to you. At the end of the day, the two furthest points on our production line are no more than 150 km apart. A small victory for the planet.
An environmentally friendly recycled fabric
The fabric used to make the clothes in our collection is made of 55% recycled polyester and 45% recycled cotton. It comes from old clothes whose thread has been reconditioned to be used again. This yarn, called E*POLYCOT, is produced by the Belda Lloréns workshop. With 65 years of experience, it is now recognized as a benchmark in sustainable and environmentally friendly spinning.
This allows us to keep the technical performance of our Made In France sportswear at the top while having a minimal environmental impact, as the production of this fabric requires no water, chemicals or CO2 emissions.
A collection of sportswear Made In France with the Low Impact label
Did you know that a garment can be called “Made in France” if it has undergone “its last substantial transformation” in France? This is a far cry from a product that is entirely or mostly made in France.
At UNCHAINED, we decided to create clothes made entirely in France. And because we don’t do things by halves, we’ve also looked for concrete ways to prove it to you. This is why all the pieces in the collection have the Low Impact label. The latter guarantees that our clothes are made in France in a local and social way, but also responsible. Job creation within the social and solidarity economy, short circuit, local sourcing, low carbon footprint, recycling… That is what this label is all about.
