Our Good is beautiful criteria

At Maisons du Monde, we take care to respect human rights, the health of our customers, and the preservation of natural resources when developing our homeware collections. To be part of the Good is beautiful selection, products must meet at least one of the nine sustainability criteria we have identified, and fall into one of our three overarching sustainability objectives.

Traceable wood

From the forest to the point of sale, wood can be traced to help in the fight against deforestation.

Sustainably certified wood

From forests managed in a sustainable way, this wood allows us to preserve both wood resources and biodiversity.

OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100

This certification guarantees the absence of substances undesirable to health, in particular for the skin.

Certified organic cotton

Made without GMOs and without synthetic products, this cotton ensures a product that respects both the environment and producers.

Recycled materials

Recycled materials make it possible to avoid additional creation of raw materials and to reuse waste.

Made in Europe

European manufacturing enables the development of European industry and reduces CO2 emissions linked to the transport of products.

Our goal:
contribute to protecting our planet and those who live in it

Developing the Made in Europe label

European manufacturing allows the development of European industry and helps reduce transportation distances. To be part of the Good is beautiful selection, the main manufacturing steps of the product must be carried out in a European Union country, the United Kingdom, Norway, or Switzerland, and more than half of the manufacturing expenses must have been carried out in these countries.

What positive impact does this have?

Choosing these products makes it possible to develop European industry and helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions to combat climate change.

Preserve talent locally and globally

At the heart of our collections and our commitments is local and international talent and craft. The talent and skills of our suppliers merit our full respect and attention. Preserving them helps protect cultural heritage and promote craftsmanship and jobs related to it. To be part of the Good is beautiful selection, products must bear witness to local, historical, and traditional crafting techniques but also to a desire for adaptation, the use of local raw materials and the use of a local, qualified workforce ensuring manual or industrial manufacture.

What is the positive impact?

Choosing these products makes it possible to preserve traditions, to support creation and craft. These products give an extra soul to our interiors, they are a source of inspiration and invite us to discover the world we live in.
