Since its creation in 2007, Coq en Pâte has been committed to making products of the highest possible quality, in the respect for people and the environment.
Since our beginnings in 2007, we have chosen to manufacture our clothes and accessories ethically in India, using GOTS certified organic cotton. The GOTS certification guarantees the respect of environmental and social criteria throughout the textile chain.
Organic cotton is: the absence of chemicals, a water consumption reduced by half, crop rotation and also the preservation of the health of producers.
Notebooks, cards..., we offer a range of stationery products made from recycled paper labelled FSC and from French printers certified by the label "Imprim'vert".
What is FSC certification? FSC, for Forest Stewardship Council, is a label, and more importantly, an independent certification system, guaranteeing that forests are managed in a responsible and sustainable way.

We choose our workshops with care, according to their know-how and the respect of the working conditions.
The workshops we work with are certified GOTS, SA 8000 or Sedex. These standards of social responsibility guarantee the respect of the fundamental rights of workers. Our clothes and accessories are made in India, toys and stationery in Brittany (France).
Our creations, essentially turned towards the endangered wildlife, wish to sensitize the young public and their relatives to the protection of an endangered biodiversity. Our commitments go further as we finance environmental education programs.
