Françoise has an atypical background for the environment. Self made designer without academic background but a strong appetite for design, arts and hand craft. She likes to undertake and build, first as a graphic designer at Studio Romancie, then in Africa with African Riddim and finally with the creation of her brand Les Belles Vagabondes. It was in September 2018 that she decided to start this new adventure.
Les Belles Vagabondes is a craft brand, advocating slow fashion. We are a brand that takes time: time to be inspired and to draw, time to colour and to manufacture to obtain high quality products. Lovers of beautiful things, we seek inspiration in the arts, nature and travel. Our designs are authentic and hand-drawn. Les Belles Vagabondes advocates the love of materials: we refuse synthetics and prefer wool, silk or organic cotton which are 100 % natural. We refuse digital printing and prefer the traditional Indian printing which gives better nuances and authentics colours.
All our scarves are printed in India in a Socially Responsible Workshop. We use AZO Free dyes, free of heavy metals and hazardous chemicals. We therefore limit environmental risks in the country of production and wearing the items on the skin is safe for your health. We make every effort to produce an anti-waste fashion. We take the time to think about each detail, each material and colour. In order to offer a fair price, we control all stages of development from design to launch. By buying our products, you participate in the movement of a sustainable and artisanal fashion.
