RECYCLED MATERIALS AT LONGCHAMP

Longchamp makes use of various initiatives in reducing its impact on the environment.

Since 2019, Longchamp has launched three product lines using recycled materials:

IS LONGCHAMP COMMITTED TO PURSUING INNOVATION?

One of the founding acts of the brand is seeking solutions through innovation and design. The first Longchamp product – the leather covered pipe – was an innovation in itself, and it was the original casing that made it a success. Every day, Longchamp staff test, optimise and develop new and innovative projects. These efforts are now geared towards research into processes and raw materials that can help minimise products’ ecological impact. So for the Le Pliage bag, Longchamp staff developed a new canvas, both sides of which are made of recycled polyester derived from plastic waste (mainly recycled bottles). The customisable canvas is printed at our workshops in the Maine-et-Loire using a process that does not consume water. The launch of the "My Pliage Signature" bag is one of the outcomes of this undertaking, which involves putting innovation at the service of the environment. Following the same principle, the Green District and Le Pliage Green ranges are made from recycled polyamide canvas. Longchamp aims to use only canvas produced by recycling come 2023.
