Where are l'Alufacture's products made ?

The collections of l'Alufacture are made from A to Z in France, in Champagne, in our workshops specializing in aluminium work since 1938. Our collections are the result of their extraordinary know-how, and their rare mastery of coloured anodization.

What is anodized aluminium ?

Anodization is a chemical process aimed at destroying the oxide layer which protects aluminium in its natural state, before recreating it more resistant and more homogeneous. Very different from a painting process, anodization allows aluminium to retain its metallic appearance, its reflections and its depth ; the injection of a pigment during the process infuses the colour directly into the metal. It is then adorned with a finish that is as aesthetic as it is durable, while remaining 100% recyclable and very easy to maintain.

What is eco-design ?

Eco-design is a term that represents the desire to design products while respecting the principles of sustainable development. This approach takes into account the environmental impacts of the product from its design, then throughout its life cycle.

Our collections marked as eco-designed are part of this approach.
