Coltesse is an independent workshop creating and producing in Paris timeless and comfortable essentials to wear from Monday to Sunday. A nonchalant wardrobe for every day, that goes out of the everyday, for a trip, a story, encounters.

Passionately Parisian, instinctively cosmopolitan.

Coltesse is a reference to Bernard Marie Koltès, a self-taught theatre author, whose common thread between his works is communication between people.

Having studied at the French Fashion Institute and its Labels programme, as well as in the "Ateliers de Paris", Florent Coltesse, the creator of the brand seeks balance in his creative proposals.

Between a demanding sophistication for an everyday wardrobe and a travelling freedom of movement, our creations mix inspirations found in workwear, tailoring and sportswear in small touches.

It is also a balance between our creative ambitions and our ecological convictions.

Human beings are at the heart of our project: to respect the planet is to respect them.

Production is carried out in France and in Europe. In 2020, Coltesse was awarded the "Made in Paris" label. The jury wished to distinguish its know-how by awarding it the Jury Prize for the "Fashion and Accessories" category.

Fabrics made from natural materials are favoured,
Organic cotton sweatshirts and t-shirts,
The buttons are made of mother-of-pearl or bio-sourced materials,
Zips are nickel-free,
Wool is mulesing free...

The continuous improvement of our production process is part of the brand's DNA. Coltesse is an eco-conscious company in a world of challenges.

Since September 2020, thanks to pre-sales on a selection of items, we have been optimising stocks by producing exclusively for you in our Parisian and French workshops. A local production allows us less transport, a better follow-up of the productions and better lead times.

It is essential for us to promote local activity and know-how.
