At a time when one in two workers wears a uniform, work clothing represents an intimate link between an organisation and its employees.

It helps to rally and strengthen employees’ feeling of belonging to the company culture. Making the employee an active player consists first of all in listening to their needs, analysing the constraints of their workstations and involving them in all the concerns of a new collection. With this in mind, CEPOVETT offers exclusive solutions in collaboration with the users of its clothing.

S-cafe, fabric made from coffee grounds

Coffee is much more than just a drink in a cup! It boasts functional properties that enable it to be transformed into textile components.

"S.café", created by the Taiwan-based textile company Singtex, is a technical composite fibre made from recycled coffee grounds and partly from recycled PET. It offers excellent breathability and UV protection. Used in the manufacture of clothing, it has the virtue of eliminating odours and is pleasant against the skin, even during intensive activities. This innovative made-in-France fabric provides an interesting alternative to synthetic materials derived from oil. Giving a second life to coffee may be a way to imagine the textiles of tomorrow.

    "Nespresso has been taking action promoting the circular economy for 20 years. Moreover, the company is increasing the proportion of recycled materials in all areas: in its machines, its capsules and its Coffee Specialists' uniforms. Thanks to the partnership with CEPOVETT, we're able to offer these meaningful tote bags to our Boutique employees. For us, this is a structuring element for involving all our employees in our circular economy initiatives."

    "Environmental issues and our actions in the circular economy form one of the main areas of our strategic plan. Our image-building outfits are part of this approach: we favour outfits made from certified raw materials. By collecting and then recycling them, we can turn them into new products for us to re-use."

    Communications Director, Orange France
  • "Recycling is essential to reducing our impact on ecosystems. Here we manufacture technical and ethical clothing, we measure the benefits of our programmes on overall quality, both economically, socially and environmentally, on a daily basis."
