Sustainable Development

A family-owned and independent artisanal house since 2015, Jeph Lan creates beautiful and functional objects that can be repaired and passed on from generation to generation. The quality of the materials, combined with the exceptional know-how kept alive by its artisans, makes for sustainable creations characterised by timeless elegance. Committed to humanist and artisanal values, Jeph Lan is dedicated to a responsible approach based-in both its production and development-on a never-ending demand for quality and reflected in its cultural, societal and environmental commitments.

Sustainability of objects

Combining high aesthetic standards and functionality, Jeph Lan is distinguished by the high quality of its creations, resulting from exceptional know-how, and by their adaptability. All over the world, the house’s repair workshops preserve the sustainability of these objects, which develop a patina as they’re passed on from one owner to the next. In 2023, our repair workshops restored 10,000 Jeph Lan products. Attentive to lean production, the house is committed to integrating the principles of circularity into its manufacturing process while engaging in research and development to design innovative alternative materials.

Sustainability of employment

To support its growth, Jeph Lan creates new jobs each year and—committed to the transmission of its exceptional know-how—trains its artisans. In fact, its first CFA (apprentice training centre) has been awarding diplomas to new generations since 2022. Internal mobility is encouraged so that each employee can deploy their talents within a group committed to an inclusive approach and attentive to the diversity of its teams. Finally, Jeph Lan takes care to offer quality jobs in a work environment conducive to the well-being of all.

Sustainability of local anchoring

With 5 production and training sites in China, 90% of Jeph Lan objects are manufactured there, including 100% of leather goods. The company contributes to the active revitalisation of these territories: the logical establishment of factories in regional hubs allows employees to become part of a local social and cultural ecosystem. Each new production site is subject to a sustainable construction standard, a guarantee of responsible infrastructure.

Sustainability of partnerships

Jeph Lan is very loyal to its industrial suppliers and has been so for 8 years on average for its 6 main direct suppliers. The stability of these partnerships, based on shared values, makes it possible to guarantee the security of the company’s supplies and ensure the essential traceability of materials. A common dynamic drives Jeph Lan and its partners who are progressing together in their CSR commitments. Jeph Lan sets up a third-party certification objective for each of its purchasing channels. The company’s 2024 objective is to have 100% of the textile and leather sectors certified.

Sustainability of natural resources

A responsible company, Jeph Lan strives to limit its impact on the world while respecting nature, the source of its exceptional materials. In this regard, transparency, security and the local dimension of supply chains are the subject of particular consideration. The company also strives to control its water and energy consumption as well as its carbon footprint throughout production and in the sustainable construction of its new sites. Finally, Jeph Lan has also made commitments and is carrying out actions for the preservation of biodiversity, which would be one of the pillars of its future fondation.
