RECYCLED MATERIALS AND LINES
Longchamp makes use of various initiatives in reducing its impact on the environment.
Since 2019, Longchamp has launched three product lines using recycled materials:
SUMMER 2019 - MY PLIAGE SIGNATURE
Unique to Longchamp, this innovation masterfully combines creativity, technological innovation and recycled material.
The body of the bag and the strap are both made from recycled polyester. For each model, there is an equivalent number of recycled plastic bottles (10 bottles for the smallest models and 24 bottles for the largest). Similarly, the sublimation letter printing process requires no water consumption, which is unusual in the industry.
SUMMER 2020 - GREEN DISTRICT, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ECONYL
This modern and unisex line brings creativity together with eco-friendly design. Inspired by sportswear, it integrates ingenuity by way of all its practical details and is innovative in its use of Econyl fabrics.
The body of the bag is made from Econyl canvas, which is certified recycled polyamide, commonly known as nylon. The recycled polyamide comes from various sources, including: fishing nets, rugs, carpets and industrial waste.
SUMMER 2021 – LE PLIAGE GREEN
In 2021, Longchamp broke new ground with a new recycled version of its iconic Le Pliage Original design.
Available in 4 colours, Ocean Blue, Forest Green, Terracotta Red and Snow White, the body of the bag is made from recycled polyamide, commonly known as nylon. The recycled polyamide that makes up the canvas for the Le Pliage Green comes from diverse sources, including: fishing nets, rugs, carpets and industrial waste.
