We want the planet to rest too
We work on concrete actions with a real impact
Committed to our environment
Respect for the planet and our social environment is part of our DNA. Aware of the potential impact of our activity, it is up to us to try to reverse this impact and thus benefit our environment.
Sustainability as a driver of Innovation
Innovation identifies us as a brand, and today we focus our R&D on a better planet. Over the last few years, our innovation efforts have pursued a clear goal: to contribute to creating a healthier and more sustainable world, starting with one of the basic pillars for people: rest.
We work on the development and search for innovative solutions that are more respectful of the environment so that the Planet can also rest. In short, for Velfont Rest to be a Sustainable Rest

Production process and operations
We work on the continuous improvement of all the phases of our production process and the rest of our operations. Projects already implemented:
Local production: we contribute to the development of the local textile sector, making Km 0 garments. In addition, we work with local producers to develop raw materials to replace imported ones.
Installation of solar panels: our plant has solar or photovoltaic panels that produce electricity from sunlight, an inexhaustible and environmentally friendly source of energy.
Vertical integration: thanks to direct control over all stages of the process, we achieve total end-to-end visibility, from the procurement of raw materials to the preparation of orders for dispatch.
Optimisation of resources: reduction in the consumption of raw materials thanks to an exhaustive control of wastage during the production process and batches/material rotation, with an impact on the volume of waste generated due to obsolescence.
- Green Power: improvement of the warehouse and plant layout for duvets and padded protectors to minimise operator movements.
Collaboration with workshops for labour reintegration: we delegate part of the handling operations to reintegration workshops for people at risk of social exclusion.
Sustainable best practices: for Velamen, the solution lies in all of us. For this reason, the teams that work in the production, logistics and office centres always apply the sustainability Best Practices to generate the smallest volume of waste and promote recycling, reduce energy consumption, water and office materials such as paper or printer ink.
ISO 9001 Certification – Quality Management System: we work with strict quality standards certified and aligned with our sustainability policy. These ensure that our processes are standardized and under a rigorous control and continuous improvement protocol.
ISO 14001 Certification – Environmental Management: to ensure that we achieve the desired quality and environmental standards year after year, we continuously undergo audits to certify our environmental performance. In 2021 we have been audited for ISO 14001 Certification.
Washing and maintenance of your Velfont products
You can easily contribute to the environment by always washing your clothes at the lowest possible temperature. Whatever the composition of your garment, and even if it allows very high washing temperatures, if you wash it at a low temperature you will be extending its useful life and doing your bit for the planet. Also avoid the use of chemical products such as bleach, because of their high level of contamination.
Technology, Innovation and Team are the pillars of Planet Care by Velfont, a project with a start date, but no end date: progress towards a more sustainable planet is here to stay.
Excited to take on our 2022 challenges, we want to be a transparent brand and objectively communicate our progress in terms of sustainability. And in this sense, certifications are our best guarantee. Independent international organisations that certify our social and environmental performance.
