Our recycled fabrics

Since Cinabre’s creation, 8 years ago, we have developed collections with recycled fabrics. Military or Hawaien vintage shirts have been transformed in bow ties and ties in our atelier in The Loire Castle Valley. Alexandre Chapellier, who created Cinabre, regularly goes bargain-hunting in France and abroad to create exclusive and limited capsules. Since November 2019, Cinabre also offers a selection of recycled cashmere scarves. The collection is made in a Florentine workshop specialized in cashmere recycling. The workshop carries out all the steps that makes possible to transform second-hand sweaters and socks into scarves. Vintage cashmere clothes are sorted by color and carefully checked to be sure they respect the 100% cashmere composition. The material is then reduced to fibers and woven again to create our scarves.

Toile de Jouy x Cinabre

In 2019, Cinabre has started a collaboration with the famous Toile de Jouy. Since then, it has become one of the hallmarks of the maison. We went to Jouy en Josas, the historical place where started the Toile de Jouy in 1760 and where the savoir-faire français has lived on since then. For our collection, we chose one of the oldest etchings done by J.B. Huet around 1785. The screen printing allows the best precision to reproduce the complexity of the motives. The color intensity and the slight embossed details are obtained by the numerous applications of the screen printing. The final finish testifies of the high quality craftsmanship at work.
