A symbol of the French Touch, the Filt shopping bag and its inalterable manufacturing process stands the test of time, trends and tendencies and is a perfect fit for the current neo-retro wave. Made in Normandy since its debut more than 150 years ago, the brand has been able to revive itself with vibrant colors, two-tone bags and a hammock that has become an icon. Available in two sizes and ten colors from the softest to the most vivid tones, the Filt shopping bag is definitely a safe bet.
5 questions to the designer
Give us 3 words that describe your universe.
Genuineness, openness and commitment.
What is your brand’s secret to combine tradition and modernity?
By always looking at the world and considering our own skills with a fresh, unbiased eye. By questioning ourselves everyday and manufacturing modern and high-performance equipment.
What are Filt’s main sources of inspiration?
Life, things, people, nature, our history…
Where and how bags and hammocks made?
They are made exclusively in Normandy, with the most advanced netting machinery in Europe.
“Made in France”: why that choice?
I think the real question is: why did other industries choose to manufacture their products abroad, when they possessed the know-how in France? Perhaps for profit, or for marketing purposes? We have been making our nets in France since 1860. The company has never even thought of relocating its production and expertise. “Made in France” runs in our blood. It is also a societal commitment.
