La fabrication, parlons-en

THE SWEAT AS ADN : It all starts with a thread...

As sweatshirt and american fleece specialists, the quality is an essential subject. Since the creation of French Disorder, season after season, we have pushed ever further our quality requirements both in terms of cuts, as the choice of materials and the care given to finishes.

To weave the mesh of our sweatshirts and t-shirts, we have chosen the Egyptian cotton which is renowned to be the finest cotton in the world. Its longer and more resistant fibers are making it a premium cotton, which, after spinning and knitting, are giving a softer and more durable mesh over time. And even if the stages are numerous before obtaining the final mesh, the high quality of Egyptian cotton is for us the starting point of all production.

THE MESH : The fundamental element

Every season, the knitting of the best mesh is a fundamental challenge for our team. After performing a series of tests, we are writing a very detailed specification for each mesh (composition, weight, scraping, dyeing ...). We have selected knitters who are known as real references in the production of circular knit and jersey in Portugal. They are following all of our criteria to the letter and are achieving a strict control of impurities and defects of the mesh throughout all the knitting process. Cotton being a natural fiber, we are picking a heavier and denser fleece so that the knit remains irreproachable, wash after wash. And as we are convinced that softness is synonymous with a good fleece, a mechanical work of mesh ennoblement is carried out with carbon emeril finishing to give it even more softness with a light peach skin effect.

Last but not least, for winter knits, a brushing is carried out gently on the inner part, to bring it a fluffy appearance. With this «cocoon» finish, the sweatshirt is warmer, even sweeter and comfortable to wear next to the skin.

THE COLORS OF FRENCH DISORDER :

For many seasons, the collection is not just about different cuts. French Disorder’s colors are now also as much essential. After a lot of research and inspiration, our artistic director and his team is imagining the plan of the collection and the color palette. Several “lab dip” tests according to Pantone references are required before obtaining the perfect color.

The rolls of material are then dyed and fixed, then the mesh must remain at rest for at least 72 hours. As we pay a lot of attention to the respect of the environment, we ensure that our dyers partners are committed daily in a responsible industrial behavior (saving water, energy, prohibition of heavy metals, recycling ...).

THE CONFECTION : And the clothing takes shape

All models are developed by our team of stylists in Bordeaux. Several prototypes and many fittings are made with our patronists in order to obtain the perfect fitting.

Once the patterns and finishes validated, we entrust the manufacture to our partner factories which are also established in Portugal. The three workshops we have selected have years of experience in high-end ready-to-wear and are sharing our social and human values (decent wages, prohibition of child labor, respect for trade union rights and security conditions ...).

Their challenge: adapt our patterns to cut the material by anticipating any shrinkage due to washing, and thus ensure the correct measures between all models and sizes. Regarding the finishes of the sweatshirts, we require a double topstitching on all interior seams so that they do not warp. Once the confection finished, all the garments are prewashed at the factory to prevent shrinkage. This softening wash is bringing the little final touch with a pleasant fragrance, olfactory signature of French Disorder.

THE FD MANUFACTURE :

The last manufacturing stage takes place in our workshop in Bordeaux. This is where we are producing patterns and printed messages. Our team is composed of professionals who master all the latest techniques of textile marking. And as we want to preserve this handmade and local touch, we have also recruited a team of experienced seamstresses.
