Azur is based in Marseille, France and committed to the sustainable creation of everyday garments. Founded in 2019 by Lisa Favreau and Lisa Guedel-Dolle, Azur celebrates craftsmanship and French manufacturing with an artistic and sentimental vision. Every garment is designed to be simple, functional, timeless and lasting and is created to have a place in everyday life.
We sourced antique natural fabrics manufactured in France in the 20th century, such as cotton, linen, silk or wool, that we sometimes naturally dye with plants in our workshop in Marseille. Each garment is designed, cut and sewn in Marseille with cotton thread and corozo nut buttons, all made in France.
Our aesthetic choices are dictated by the materials, manufacturing processes and artisanal know-how that correspond with our ideals of working ethically, environmentally, and locally.
We are constantly striving to improve our practices as we move forward to adopt ever more respectful production processes.
