De Bonne Facture shareholder!
After 10 years, we have decided to open our shares to our community.
De Bonne Facture is starting a community investment program, via the sustainable investment platform Lita. This will allow you to participate in our growth while remaining an independent business.
We are choosing to open our capital to our community of friends, customers and partners because we want to build our business with the people who care about what we do and support the positive, sustainable business model we have been building all those years.
The operation is open as of now! Our objective is to collect €500,000, of which €370,000 are reserved for LITA.co investors, and €130,000 are already secured with business angels. You will be able to invest starting from €300.

I am new to De Bonne Facture : what is special about it ?
De Bonne Facture was started by Deborah Neuberg with a philosophy of clothing inspired by design rather than fashion, working on fabric, finishes, and make. Just like the Slow Food movement was renovating the agricultural world, it was time to work with the same principles in the clothing industry.
De Bonne Facture was never about made in, but made by.

*Investing in unlisted companies involves a significant risk of partial or total loss of the amount invested as well as a risk of illiquidity. In equities, the tax benefits are also offered in return of a blocking period of the assets which will generally be greater than the minimum tax holding. Tax treatment depends on the individual situation of each customer.
