How to make your cap, an eco-responsible accessory? 20 May 2023 - Posted in: Headoniste values, Lifestyle

Lovers of a more sustainable and environmentally friendly fashion would like to make their cap an eco-responsible accessory.

In today's sustainable and environmentally conscious society, more and more consumers are looking for more sustainable and environmentally friendly fashion. But when it comes to caps, the choice is not easy.

Almost all of the models offered in France are manufactured in Asia, notably in Vietnam and Bangladesh, or in Eastern European countries with the lowest wages, notably Bulgaria. The fashion and textile brands largely maintain the confusion by using the concepts of Made In Europe or French Brand. Most of the time, caps are imported in mass, and at best, embroidered in France.

Eco-responsible accessory brands

Despite a production cost 10 times higher than in Asia or Eastern Europe, notably Bulgaria, Headoniste caps are made in reference workshops, known and recognized for their artisanal know-how. All of them are located in France and have been awarded the Entreprise du patrimoine vivant (Living Heritage Company) label.

At a time when the eco-responsibility of brands has become a truism, we strive to produce quality caps while always keeping certain values in mind.

We only produce limited editions of 100, all our caps are numbered from 1 to 100. Our limited editions and pre-order system restrict overproduction, avoiding waste and environmental impact.

We favour short circuits as much as possible. Our fabrics are French or Italian, as well as our accessories and our production workshops do not use subcontracting.

We use recycled materials for the labeling of our caps, as well as on most of our fabrics, such as woollens.

We choose committed partners, favoring natural materials and eco-responsibility, guaranteeing complete traceability of their products.

Our production workshops work according to an exceptional artisanal method, each cap is produced with the greatest care and respect of our commitments. The finishes are meticulous, the materials used are rare and of high quality. Each product is carefully checked before shipping.

Make the cap an eco-responsible accessory

To be eco-responsible, our Headoniste caps are distinguished by their environmentally friendly approach throughout their life cycle. Their design is based on the use of sustainable and recycled materials. For example, some caps are made from organic cotton fibers, which are grown without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers that are harmful to the ecosystem. Other designs are made from recycled materials such as polyester or nylon, helping to reduce the demand for new raw materials.

In addition to the materials used, eco-friendly cap production is also characterized by environmentally friendly processes. Manufacturers seek to minimize their carbon footprint by opting for more sustainable production methods, such as the use of natural and non-toxic dyes. In addition, these companies are often careful to limit their water consumption and reduce waste generated during manufacturing.

Another important aspect of eco-friendly caps is their durability. Unlike lower quality products, these caps are designed to last over time. Manufacturers pay close attention to manufacturing details and use strong sewing techniques, ensuring increased durability. This means consumers can enjoy their favorite cap longer, avoiding waste and overuse.
