Intrigué par notre mission ?

Tout a commencé avec notre fondatrice visionnaire, Jenny Randria, mais le véritable héros, c'est vous.

 

Découvrez l'histoire ci-dessous

Chez Citron Jaune, nous entremêlons le fil de la conscience et du savoir-faire. Chacune de nos créations est le fruit d'un effort artisanal et humain, nécessitant au minimum 2 heures de travail minutieux et appliqué, avec amour. Nous sommes fiers de fabriquer la majorité de nos produits dans notre atelier niché à Antananarivo, Madagascar, où les techniques industrielles modernes convergent harmonieusement avec les traditions séculaires. Ici, la broderie, le smockage et le crochet faits main ne sont pas seulement des techniques ; ce sont des héritages vivants. Notre engagement en faveur d'une mode éthique n'est pas seulement un choix ; c'est un mariage harmonieux du passé et du futur, où le style rencontre la durabilité, et chaque fil raconte une histoire.

Nous nous efforçons de trouver un équilibre entre notre volonté de proposer des collections contemporaines tout en préservant nos valeurs humaines dans tout ce que nous créons, produisons et distribuons.

Ethically made

Good working conditions not only enhance the quality of life but also bring happiness to those who benefit from them.

In the heart of Citron Jaune, our fashion designer Jenny Randria, based in Canada, ignites the creative spark that drives our vision.

We are a small, tight-knit workshop comprising 25 dedicated individuals, with a remarkable 95% of our team being talented women artisans and textile workers. Our shared goal is simple yet profound: to gather exceptional minds and hands, fashioning the finest clothing and accessories tailored just for you.

Consider this: Your next purchase has the power to directly impact a woman's life. It can help her pay bills, provide an education for her children, and put food on the family table. In Madagascar, where many artisan women didn't have access to formal education in their youth, their skilled hands are their greatest assets. What they need most is stable employment under fair conditions to thrive and reshape their destinies.

By choosing ethical fashion, you're not just acquiring beautiful items; you're actively contributing to the empowerment of these talented artisans. Together, we can grow our community of skilled individuals and create a ripple of positive change that extends far beyond fashion.

100% Biodegradable

100% natural materials/ Small Batch

At Citron Jaune, we wholeheartedly embrace the concept of slow fashion. Our approach involves crafting in small batches and scaling up production only upon your order, significantly reducing overstock and minimizing waste of precious materials and energy resources.

While we make every effort to source our materials locally, our unwavering commitment to quality occasionally takes us beyond borders. Our creations predominantly feature natural biodegradable fibers like cotton, raffia, silk, and wool. When necessary for technical purposes, we incorporate select materials, such as those providing elasticity or waterproofing, all while maintaining our dedication to sustainability. Our buttons, for instance, are carefully crafted from sustainable wood or adorned with the timeless elegance of mother of pearl. We are not using plastic or metallic parts. 

To minimize our environmental footprint, our items are shipped in bulk to Canada, where they are thoughtfully packaged individually and distributed to Americas and Asia. Orders to Europe are directly shipped from the Workshop.

Our commitment to sustainability extends to every detail, from our eco-friendly tags to our biodegradable mailer bags, wrapping paper, and shipping boxes.

Yet, we agree that there is always more that can be done. Every day, we strive to make improvements, recognizing that even the smallest steps have the power to pave the way for a brighter, more sustainable future. Thank you for joining us on this meaningful journey !
