YOUR BRAND BY BILUM

SHORT AND TRANSPARENT CIRCUIT
“Eco-responsible” by common sense, we have from the start established local production, in a short circuit and part of the social and solidarity economy. After rigorous sorting, we choose each piece and carefully cut them in our workshop in Choisy-le-Roi, seven kilometers from Paris. The fragments made of tarpaulin and rigid materials are cleaned by hand by the staff of a social integration company seconded to bilum, double-sided, with green detergents. The textiles are thoroughly washed by professional ÉSAT laundries (workplace assistance establishment and service, welcoming people with disabilities)".
We have our small integrated workshop for testing and testing materials, prototypes, mini series, and after-sales service, and collaborate for manufacturing with 7 workshops that we have selected for their quality. They are all located in France, mainly in the Paris region. Four of them are ÉSAT and EA (workplace assistance establishment and service and adapted company). Some are saddlers and leatherworkers with historical know-how. They represent more than forty people. With us, there are around fifty people who work every day to offer you high-quality products from upcycling. bilum draws, if necessary and depending on the project, on the expertise and know-how of different trades: textile stylists, designers, prototypists, leather specialists, saddlers, upholsterers, framers, etc.
HARDWARE AND SUPPLIES
Closing systems (buckles, zip, etc.) as well as small accessories are French and European. They can be personalized in the colors of a brand: orange zips on kits made for Orange, red for Société Générale, etc.
COMMON USES OF PARTS RECOVERED BY OUR BTOB CUSTOMERS
Collaborations allow a communication campaign or a heritage material to last over time. These then become press or VIP gifts, social network endowments, items for resale in their own shops, etc.
