Designed in Paris
Zadig&Voltaire was founded in 1997 in Paris, and since that moment all the brand’s collections have been designed in our offices in the heart of the French capital. No sketch or silhouette, not even a print, has been designed or drawn anywhere but in Zadig&Voltaire’s nerve centre.
Stylists, designers and the heads of our workshops work hand in hand, led by our Artistic Director Cecilia Bönström, to create the pieces which have made, are making and will go on to make the brand’s success.
In order to offer you the best possible pieces, we have sought out the skills we need wherever they are located, to ensure we can have confidence, whatever the design or level of technical difficulty, and always while promoting production that is as sustainable as possible.
Why this choice of manufacturing country?
Jeans factories with eco-friendly know-how – In Tunisia, more than 10 years ago, we found two factories which have developed their know-how in relation to limiting their water consumption by installing a recycling system as well as by using a non-polluting washing system with a laser. By creating in these factories a division dedicated to the development of jeans, for their assembly, washing and dyeing, it has been possible to limit pollution, not only from transport between factories, as they are located next to one another, but also by obtaining GOTS certification.
