Each choice we have done, from design to production, has been guided by the same desire to respect childhood and protect the planet.
100% recycled to preserve natural resources
The textile industry, the Fast Fashion, and the environment do not always mix, and this for two main causes related to overproduction:
- pollution and waste it generates
- Pressure on natural resources
Regarding waste, each year, 73% of the product textiles are found at the discharge. And only 1% is reused to produce new clothes. This is where we think consumers and creators have a role to play.
At UPAP, we have chosen from already existing materials and offer them a second life in our clothes. Our sweatshirts are therefore composed of cotton from the recycling of industrial cotton fibers and polyester, coming from plastic bottles. Thanks to this process, which does not suppose the culture of any plant, 5000L of water by sweatshirt are saved and the revalued plastics waste. We offer you waste a resource to change our production logics.
The packaging used are as minimalist and clean as possible, in accordance with our general philosophy.
Resistant and respectful to guarantee the comfort of children
This mixture between cotton and recycled polyester ensures both the comfort and resistance of the fiber obtained. The traceability of reused waste as well as the conformity of the recycling process is guaranteed by certificationGlobal Recycled Standar which has the Spanish plant producing sons.
At each stage, we are surrounded by French companies to adopt a responsible and ethical mode of production. Producing locally is to reduce transport and therefore the carbon footprint of your garment. It is Valuing the textile sector French, preserving the know-how of our regions and trades. Thanks to the trust relationships tied, we can assure you Complete transparency Throughout manufacturing on the identity of our partners and their methods of manufacture. The Made in France This is the guarantee to know precisely every business you support with the purchase of a sweatshirt. Give meaning to consumption By anchoring in a territory and a common approach!
So we called for great frenchies to conceive upon:
- the bosses, the gradation and the prototypes were carried out in Paris,
- the sons, made by our Spanish neighbors, are knitted by the company in the sum,
- The sweatshirts are then made near Castres.
Thanks to them for their availability and support!
