Sustainable factory

Our sustainable and social engagements

Every day, for your projects, the physical efforts are constant and intense on the work tables. To ensure that production, we are designing a new factory that will come into being in 2021 and that has been designed to better control the impact on water and air, as well as to control energy resources and reprocess waste. You will find our production team dedicated to the sourcing of materials, eco-design and the development of sustainable solutions. Together we make the choices that matter, and to solve the equation that guides us every day, producing with respect and sustainability is important. All our productions can be designed to meet these challenges and still respect the CSR commitments of a company or the sustainable concept of a project. As a family business, Imprimerie du Marais operates its workshops as a family, united, committed, respectful of everyone and aware of the issues at stake in its industry.

"It all started at the factory with a range rich and inspiring in resources."

We have several approaches to sustainability in our factory that allow us to carry out entirely eco-responsible projects, from the resources to the techniques used. Our first manufacturing processes with controlled impacts are air, water and noise emission management, which are best mastered in our historic workshops. Everything has been rethought: the life of our communities is paramount, and running a factory in the heart of Paris must be done with respect for the neighbourhood, out of a common love of craftsmanship and a passion for our nature. Recycling the raw materials used is key to the operation of a committed production. We have the "imprim'vert" label which certifies the recycling of all materials such as cleaning solvents, machine rinsing water, paper, gilding and cutting tools, inks... Everything is thought out to ensure maximum responsibility and leave no impact. Our sources of sustainable materials are a range manufactured under the most virtuous conditions and are developing day by day. Over the years, Imprimerie du Marais has created three collections composed entirely of vegetal materials, derived from residual resources (food and textiles), 60 materials, sourced as closely as possible and mainly in Europe. These ranges are treasures ready to inspire your projects and adapt to your desires.

NANUSHKA TREE BARK INVITATION

“Come As You Are’ is a tribute to one’s reflection in an expressive correlation to vulnerability, which embraces flaws and cherishes imperfections in the most welcoming way.”

Come As You Are and leave with more. This is how Nanushka chose to describe their Spring/Summer 2020 presentation, showing for the first time at Paris Fashion Week. The collection pays homage to the spirit of a nomad, the mood is set by the architecture in Lycée Condorcet, a venue enhanced with brass structures, stone carvings, and organically designed sculptures, the invite echoes the essence of the collection. Made with fair trade bark from African trees, a material chosen from our sustainable collection, and printed with eco responsible foil. As the bark is a natural handmade product, each invite is unique with its own graceful imperfections.

WE HAVE SEVERAL APPROACHES TO SUSTAINABILITY IN OUR WORKSHOPS THAT ALLOW US TO CARRY OUT ENTIRELY ECO-RESPONSIBLE PROJECTS.
