We meet Sandy Chagnaud founder of our newest eco-friendly brand Happy Haus. We discuss how she's created a brand that reflects her own personal values, from dreams of buying a farm to designing clothes with her two girls, here's five reasons we love the Parisian based brand. 

Happy Haus shirt dress

It's certified.

The denim is approved by Greenpeace's Detox certificate, it took Sandy over a year to find the right denim supplier based in Italy. "By committing to the Detox Greenpeace Commitment, my supplier can guarantee the elimination of dangerous chemicals in all stages of production, from the sizing of the yarn to the dyeing and washing process of the fabric". 

The cottons are woven in France and GOTS certified, the dyes are also GOTS certified. Being GOTS certified ensures the organic status of textiles from harvesting raw materials through to the labelling of garments, providing reassurance to the end consumer.

Sandy considers the finer details, down to the sourcing of the buttons "All of our buttons are made specially for us, by a small family business near Chalon-sur-Saône."

It's a family affair

"Happy Haus is a family company. My husband works a lot with me and my girls draw the collection with me each season. My oldest girl is 7 years old  and the youngest 4 years old. Some of my womenswear styles are developed in the eldest's size and they love wearing my clothes."

It's tres chic!

Sandy's originally from Germany but has been living in Paris for 15 years now, we asked what some of her favourite local spots are. "The forest of Rambouillet, I love being in the nature. My dream is to buy a farm here with my husband and children". She also loves to grab lunch at Rose Bakery on the 9th arrondissement and then spend the afternoon shopping at Rose Market Vintage.
