The mission of Fréolic's garments is to melt luxury and sensuality with comfort, wearability and sustainability.
Our main aim has always been to make the best lingerie possible; we want to make underwear in a way that is beneficial to the wearer, all those involved in making a garment and our planet. This means paying close attention to all of our activities throughout the company and ensuring that environmental and social performance are monitored and continuously improved.
The conduct and transparency of our supply chain is something we observe closely. Over the years we have endeavoured to create trusting, open and transparent relationships with a network of suppliers, in order to support workers’ rights and their welfare. It is important to us that the people making our clothes are treated with dignity, respect, and care.
By situating our Atelier in London we avoid many of the labour issues which are prevalent in the wider supply chain of the fashion industry, such as forced labour, unfair pay arrangements, and unsafe working environments.
The Importance of Fabrics
One of the most important things we can do to improve the environmental and social performance of a garment is to use the right fabric. To create enough fabric for just one garment requires significant use of energy, water, chemicals, and human power. So, managing this to ensure energy, water, and chemical input is minimised whilst human-power is cared for, is crucial to positive environmental and social performance.
Each Fréolic garment comes with a unique serial number guaranteeing its provenance that can be traced via Dentelle de Calais-Caudry database allowing owners to identify the fine lace that decorates their lingerie.
We don’t use polyester or synthetic materials. Silk is in the essence of every Fréolic product, and that is silk, which goes in direct contact with the skin.Quality is key
Quality garment construction and the use of quality fabrics have always been core values of ours, as we want to create lingerie that can be enjoyed and valued for years. Aptly, a garment’s environmental footprint is strongly determined by its quality and usage. Purchasing one quality garment which can last for years, has a significantly smaller environmental impact than purchasing multiple poor quality garments over the same period of time.
