Where Faguo products are made?
FAGUO is a Chinese word that means “France”, or literally “Country of laws and manners”. Shoes are manufactured in Portugal, trainers in Vietnam, and accessories in China.
We ensure that labour laws and European quality standards are respected in our factories and manufacturing workshops.
Today, permanent on-site teams and frequent visits from the designers ensure these criteria are respected. Our quality requirements push us to constantly improve our manufacturing standards.
In 2011, a team from the television programme Capital (channel M6) accompanied Nicolas (co-founder) to Shanghai in our Shenzhen plant to see the textile plants that we work with.
Each day around the world, the FAGUO adventure is above all a shared experience. From Europe to Asia, hundred of people design and knit the different models.
Each step is important and we ensure that everyone pays the closest attention to detail.
We implement responsible logistics and transport for our products.
50% of shoe production was developed near the freight port, allowing us to reduce road transport emissions in China and Vietnam.
All production is transported by boat from China to Le Havre, France.
Our priority is to reduce CO2 emissions. After completing our Carbon Report (link to Carbon Report), several actions have already been implemented to reduce our business’s carbon emissions: optimisation of freight and transport methods, using organic cotton in our limited editions, rationalising logistics, raising awareness internally, changing consumption methods, etc.
To help raise awareness of packaging reuse among the community, our boxes are all made of recycled and recyclable cardboard. They are reversible and can be reused as decorative storage boxes or as bird houses to delight children. The size of the boxes used are optimised according to the shoe size.
