Creating responsible professional clothing requires the use of certified raw materials, French fabrics and ethical industrial procedures.

CEPOVETT has been a pioneer in fair trade cotton in the professional sector since 2007, and the company has also made a particularly strong commitment to fair trade in Africa. From fair trade or organic cotton, to biosourced and recycled materials, there are many possible alternative solutions for ethical fabrics.

Recycled materials are on a roll

In 2021, the French AGEC (anti-waste and circular economy) Act made it compulsory for public purchasers (State departments, local and regional authorities) to purchase supply goods from reuse and recycling pathways.
CEPOVETT has made the circular economy and tackling waste its key priority, by intending to constantly incorporate more recycled raw material in its workwear, like recycled cotton from manufacturing scraps and recycled polyester from post-consumer clothing as well as recycled plastic bottles. Ultimately, the Company is stepping up its strategy for recycling end-of-service-life garments and for upcycling production waste from its workshops by increasing the percentage of recycled materials in its products. It recommends the use of certified, labelled and ethical materials, hand-in-hand with its partners (Global Organic Textile Standard /GOTS, Fairtrade/ Max Havelaar NGO, etc.)

    Not-wasting natural resources and the circular economy are key challenges for Air France. Our Clothing Department is also expected to play its role for the Planet. Recycling end-of-service-life items, reusing them and any other virtuous approach should be pursued. This clearly expresses the company's desire to adapt through our employees' workwear and uniforms.

  • “By replacing conventional cotton with linen, Lafont has taken a further step toward local sourcing: the flax is grown in the north of France, woven and dyed in Laval and the final product is manufactured in the CEPOVETT Group workshop in Saint-Étienne. This exemplary manufacturing value chain is a testament to the French expertise that has long been a hallmark of the brand: producing ethical, responsible and well-designed occupational clothing.”
