Embellish everyday life… and respect our environment.
We are passionate about combining the pleasure of wearing a beautiful, made in France belt with the utmost respect for nature.
A significant part of the air pollution is attributed to transportation. We supply our material in France or in European neighboring countries. Our leather hides are French, Belgian, Spanish and Italian. Our buckles are Parisian or Italian, our threads, German.
Even our packagings, mostly made of cotton or paper, are made in France or in Italy.
Since Vaincourt foundation, we make our belts exclusively in France.
Respecting the environment goes together with the durability and the quality of our collections. Vaincourt, belts to be kept: our collections are timeless and of superior quality. Our belt linings are made of Belgian calf skin, fully vegetable tanned and demonstrate a tested and recognised resistance.
Our craftsmanship is the fruit of a long and handsome tradition which unites passionate teams.
We support creative craftmanship by partnering with French, « human-sized » workshops, which inherited a know-how transmitted from one generation to the next.
REDUCTION OF WASTE
- Our leather scraps are offered to schools or recycled in other production circuits.
- We only use skins of animal raised for nutritional purposes...and innovate to up-cycle material which are usually considered as rubbish: Vaincourt launched in 2021 the first belts made of marine salmon leather.
- Our leathers have obtained LWG golden medals (highest level of certification by the Leather Working Group, auditing transparency, traceability and environmental impact of leather tanning ).
We favour short series and production on order to limit over-stock.
