why Rive Droite Paris made thegoodedit
Setting themselves the challenge to produce no fabrics in the creation of their accessories – only to use existing, surplus fabrics.
By skilled tailors in Morocco, enabling them to build a career and support their families
With their manufacturing team in Morocco, paying fair wages and ensuring good working conditions
Rive Droite Paris is on a mission to create high-quality, eco-friendly, fairly priced accessories that are kind to people and the environment – while looking fantastic.
Founded by Yasmine, Sofia and Aurélie, in Paris, the trio set out to encourage others to think about how they consume. They set themselves a challenge of never producing a piece of fabric to make their accessories – knowing there was more than enough surplus and waste fabric in the fashion industry to do that job.
Recycled denim and cotton forms the foundation of most of their accessories, and they create magic with this landfill destined waste. From casual everyday bags to brilliantly designed baby changing bags and the cutest toddler backpacks – they offer a style for every need.
On top of their environmental credentials, Rive Droite Paris have set up their manufacturing operations to support people into work, and to build a career for themselves. Based in Casablanca, Morocco, their factory works directly with local fashion designers and tailors (they could tell you exactly who made your bag) ensuring fair pay and good working conditions. The production team are involved in the annual planning process, so they are better placed to plan ahead for their own workload and finances, and are paid per order.
The Rive Droite Paris team are refreshingly honest about the parts of their business which aren’t perfect – some of their processes use a lot of water (the wash out process for their jean offcuts) and they haven’t yet found a plant based paint that works as well as they need it to…but they acknowledge and commit to working on these things to constantly evolve and further improve their business.
