The concept

A bold use of textile arts


It is by using abandoned furnishing fabrics that Lissier creates its collections. We source precious fabric scraps from all over France to make our unique sneakers. This responsible process is the very essence of our textile recycling approach: we reuse what has already been produced so as not to create new waste. We also consider local production as a vector of sustainable development. This is the reason why we choose our fabrics in France and manufacture our sneakers in Europe.

Recycling precious fabric scraps

Cut without spoiling

Giving a second life to forgotten fabrics

Hunt for fabrics steeped in history

A unique sneaker

Le Lissier marries imperfect fabrics with the intention of offering a unique and singular product.

Working with old fabrics and reusing them is a perilous choice. For example, there are small scraps of fabric whose size is a constraint, while others are very thick. The character of the fabrics imposes itself on us and we must deal with it. Finally, because each cut is unique, from one shoe to another, the patterns are different. This is what makes the Le Lissier sneaker so unique.

A link to our heritage

These discarded fabrics become worn fragments of heritage. Imbued with memories, they are a Proust madeleine recalling our childhood memories: grandma's Toile de Jouy curtains, the ocher velvet sofa from the vacation home, the tapestry patterns from a museum we once visited...

There continues a poetic link with these abandoned fabrics, curious to know what they could have seen or heard.

Le Lissier therefore explores everyone's memories by revalorizing these vintage fabrics.

It is through an intergenerational object that he democratizes these fabrics from another time.
