Commitments and promises
“A pretty lingerie that provides daily comfort, made with production methods as sustainable as possible. And colours to put a smile on your face!”. That’s Celine’s vision, founder of Esquisse.
A will that came true in 2016, born from this vision of an ethical high-end lingerie, lightweight yet highly durable.
Our core ethos? High standards and full transparency at each production stage: low-carbon materials and components, manufacturing locations as close as possible, go-anywhere comfort and flamboyant creativity.
SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION METHODS
Second skin microfiber fabric, woven in France (Ardèche area), OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified, printed in France (Isère area).
Organic cotton jersey knitted in France (Troyes city), printed in France (Isère).
Lace knitted in France (Isère)
OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified mesh, knitted and printed in Italy
Polyester sateen woven in Italy, from recycled plastic bottles
Our fabrics and components are safe for human use and for the environment.
We go as local as possible, between France (90% of our materials and prints), Italy (laser cut, tulle and recycled polyester sateen) and Portugal (mainly for manufacturing).
Nothing is lost here: our scrap fabrics are recycled in scrunchies or fabric swatches for aspiring seamstresses.
SOCIAL REINTEGRATION THROUGH SHIPPING
No plastic allowed: they slip your underwear in a cotton pouch (labeled Esquisse) that you can use to store your lingerie when traveling.
SLOW FASHION QUALITY
High-end and durability go together. Pursuing excellence comes at a price but you’ll enjoy your underwear for a very long time.
COMFORT MEETS FREEDOM
We believe that intimate wear should first of all be about complete comfort and fitting, from model designs to material choice. A sleek shape with no wires, no pads, as seamless as possible. We only use cloud-soft fabrics and materials that feel incredible on your skin.
Our collections provide a feelgood escapism: lush, full of flowers and colours, scenic beauties from France or far-far away, or wild animals. All our patterns are Esquisse exclusives created by artists.
