De Bonne Facture
Simply, the ethos is in the name ‘de bonne facture,’ a French expression describing a way of designing and making things not only well, but with a holistic integrity from design to manufacturing. Launched last decade, Déborah Sitbon Neuberg has created something special, transparent, and modern all while remaining true to tradition with an artisanal nature that is reflected in each piece of her collections. De Bonne Facture looks at garments as an extension of nature from the agricultural aspects of fiber and organic components used as a reflection of the land. Central to the brand is a focus on sustainability and production through consistently seeking better ways to limit footprint and making a garment as long lasting as possible with a ceaseless effort to use responsibly grown, low impact natural fabrics and trims, limiting waste in production, and ensuring traceability from the raw materials to the finished garment. As timeless style begins at production, De Bonne Facture exclusively utilizes specialist, regional Ateliers throughout France and Italy. These family-owned production studios, from M. Vanic producing tailored pieces in Bagnolet, to outerwear made by Hervier Productions in Châtillon-sur-Indre and knitwear produced by Tricoterie du Val De Saire in Valcanville, ensure that each piece is crafted with a soul and unique qualities that correspond to the enlightened principles by which they were designed.
