May 15, 2018 Move with Marron Rouge : New Step

Par Jean-Marc, 15 May 2018, Publié dans Non classé | 0 Comment »



Hello everyone,

Message from Jean-Marc Attia Founder of Marron Rouge:

A new stage in the life of Marron Rouge and mine too. Marron Rouge was born in 2010 because of the desire to be involved in environmental and human values: to make design the spearhead of the creation of bags, fashion accessories and decorative objects in recycled materials. To do this I also added a dose of involvement with social projects, NGOs, ESAT that helped me to make these beautiful objects.

Today I decided to close all the department bags and accessories because it requires too much energy for a single man to manage this company that I created in July 2010. Profitability is not at the rendezvous no more so before being forced to stop this activity I liquid all the stock of bags and accessories. The goal is STOCK ZERO by June 30, 2018.
All bags and accessories sold on the site are  at a bargain price : in counterpat there will be no return, no exchange or refund possible.

Marron Rouge does not stop there, and the business continues in a different way:
– The decoration department remains open and will evolve in the coming months
– The bags and accessories will be marketed for a clientele of companies that want to make custom objects made of recycled materials. Do not hesitate to ask us for any estimate or project in progress
– We continue our collaboration with the Vausselia Company for all accessories in sail boat s
– If you want to use our platform to sell your recycled products do not hesitate to contact us to set up a collaboration.
– Personally I invest myself much more intensely from the middle of the second semester with the company Acanthe in Lyon. I would be an indoor landscaper for companies, but also a consultant in communication, and organization, and finally combine the plant and the recycling while maintaining the design.

What’s reassuring is bouncing again, and I’m happy about that. . I see this with a positive and optimistic eye.

In the meantime treat yourself and give yourself the bag or accessory that makes you want at a ridiculous price.

For those who do not know Marron Rouge, you can read the Marron Rouge Press Kit (in French): all important steps will be noted.

Do not hesitate to contact me for any question

With all my kindness

Jean-Marc Attia

Marron Rouge is a major player in Upcycling and Recycling in France and designs intelligent waste management as an art of living.


After creating  the company Marron Rouge in 2009, and becoming a major player in recycling in France, setting up a manufacturing company with Indian NGOs, Jean-Marc Attia launches in the local French manufacturing with actors of the  Social and solidarity economy in the French Auvergne region Rhône-Alpes


Today Marron Rouge  implement a French manufacturing  of fashion accessories that will stage French industrialists, ESATs ( workshop for reinserted handicapped people) in the  French Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region and the know-how of Marron Rouge: the creation of design objects by recycling , Recovery and processing of waste.


One of the positive impacts will be to transform waste into a circular neighbourhood economy. Marron Rouge will continue to support Indian projects in which he has been committed over the long term.


Establish a long-term collaboration with the local ESAT * to work with recycled materials.

* Establishment and Help Service by Labour is in France is a medico-social institution of protected work, reserved for people with disabilities and aiming at their insertion or social and professional reintegration.

French manufacturers have come into direct contact with Marron Rouge to upgrade their waste and scrap and surplus production. The Lyon competitiveness cluster TECHTERA has brought together Marron Rouge and French industrialists, sometimes local, to devise design solutions for the treatment of their waste.


Mid-October 2016 a crowdfunding campaign was launched to raise € 20,000 with the ULULE platform. The sum collected was € 20,640  to :

– launch the manufacture of the first prototype bags by the ESAT in the French area Auvergne region Rhone Alpes

– create templates for models of bags and accessories

– produce a first collection for sale to the general public and the distribution network

– make a press campaign

– pay commissions and VAT on this campaign


The project has already started in early 2017 with a first production of bags and accessories in blue judo mats, which will is available since begining of March 2017.



The project could progress faster with additional funding of € 50,000:


– 7.500 € extra would be used to buy our own machine to make our prototypes and some unique pieces

– 7.500 € additional fund would improve our website

– An extra 25,000 € would allow us to hire 2 people part – time, for a first time for at least one year to boost the communication and the commercial and then turn these contracts into permanent contracts

– With 5,000 € we could call on new designers for the creation of new models


The utility of the project is divided into two essential factors:


– Environmental benefits:

.No production of raw materials for the production of our creations .Valorization of falls and surplus productions of French industrialists

. Recycling of materials

. Limited carbon footprint for production using local industrial resources, ESAT and design in the region Auvergne Rhône Alpes

. Recycling or upcycling through design


– Human and Solidarity Utility:

. Employment of people from reintegration

. Job creation in the region


Jean-Marc Attia: self-taught initially, then Director of Operations in computer groups, then L’INSEAD in Fontainebleau, followed by humanitarian missions in Africa with the International Committee of the Red Cross.

In 2008, he was thrilled and questioned, leaving him “all left”, to create Marron Rouge in 2010. Seven years later the model is local and French.
