OUR SUSTAINABLE VALUES
From the very beginning,
we have made choices!
The choice to produce and sell our creations with the least possible
impact on the environment. The choice to respect all those who participate in our adventure, our suppliers
of course, but also you, our customers!
HERE IS HOW :
in short circuit
Since its creation, La Cerise sur le Gâteau has been creating collections in Portugal:
Our products are manufactured in a short circuit,
within a 30km radius in the Porto region,
a region that has managed to preserve a very dense
network of specialised craftsmen, factories and small family-owned workshops.
As our production employs many different trades,
our spinning mills are located next to our
The same goes for the printing, embroidery,
silk-screening, cutting and sewing of our fabrics.
of out fabrics
La Cerise sur le Gâteau only works
with natural fibres, such as
cotton (mostly organic), hemp or linen.
The big plus! Natural fibres are recyclable
In the vast majority of cases... we create
our fabrics first!
We have them woven in Portugal, which allows us to control the desired function of the fabric,
softness, absorption, or solidity for example, but
also to make our own designs.
our fabric yardage
Because conventional cotton cultivation beats
all records in terms of pesticides and
we have chosen to work mainly
with organic cotton, which is much more respectful of the environment.
Our bed linen is made from 100% organic cotton percale, as well as the "signature" fabric from which
we make our bags and kits and our bathroom linen.
To be continued !
The proximity of production and the flexibility
of our human-sized workshops allow us
to split up the replenishments by placing
several orders per season and to adapt
our restocking according to the needs
and thus optimise our stocks and avoid overproduction.
Zero waste objective!
All our fabric scraps, end of rolls
or non-conforming dye baths are reused
and sold in the NO WASTE category of
What about paper?
All our boxes are made in France
from recycled cardboard.
And the product packaging, a simple banner,
reduced to a minimum, is FSC certified
and made in Portugal.
