Responsible production

Corporate social responsibility has been central to our concerns since we created the label, and we are committed to a resolutely ethical production process. Our first practical step towards realising this has been to choose an exclusively European production for our clothing capsules.

We are aware that we still have a long way to go to become a 100% responsible company, especially in an industry such as ours which is one of the world's most polluting.

However, we are striving to gradually implement new actions in order to achieve this ultimate goal.

In practical terms, this is what has been implemented so far:

  • Limited quantity production to avoid overproduction
  • Manufacturing which is as local as possible with 90% of production based in Belgium and France for capsule n°4. The aim is to promote local expertise and reassert the value of certain trades, sometimes forgotten but still present in our regions
  • The incorporation of sustainable materials in our collections, such as organic cotton
  • The use of specific techniques such as fully fashioned, which can be used to reduce fabric losses
  • The use of 100% recyclable and biodegradable envelopes for sending our parcels

Our subsequent objectives are to:

  • Produce 100% in Belgium and France
  • Manage eventually to cover an entire capsule collection using sustainable materials
  • Continue researching specific techniques that can help to reduce our environmental impact
  • Recover the inevitable production leftovers and give them a second life

True costs

As part of this same commitment to responsible production, we are keen to be transparent about our cost price and the label's margin.

We are convinced that our customers are entitled to know what it costs to produce their clothes, especially since producing in Europe has many benefits that are dear to us but, at the same time, lead to higher production costs.

This is why we invite you to uncover the real costs of each of the items produced by Mosaert through the diagrams published on the product pages. Hereunder an example of one these diagrams. The sales price covers the operational costs, the communication expenses and the benefits.
