May 15, 2018 Move with Marron Rouge : New Step

Tuesday 15 May 2018



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

Upcycling, Design and Recycling


Marron Rouge launches French Manufacturing

Marron Rouge Crowdfunding CAMPAIGN with  ULULE


From October 13, 2016 to November 27, 2016


MARRON ROUGE is a major player in the upcycling and recycling in France that designs smart waste management as a lifestyle.

The establishment of collaborations for several years with NGOs in India, was just the beginning. MARRON ROUGE launches in October 2016 a French manufacturing fashion accessories that will feature:

  • French Manufacturing companies,
  • ESAT (Reinsertion program for handicapped people) in the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region

  • to discover the project and participate:


The history of Marron Rouge

Created in 2009 by Jean-Marc Attia, MARRON ROUGE imagines and designs fashion accessories and recycled materials in decoration (safety belt, tube, tire, tailor centimeter parachute canvas bag …), made in India by local NGOs. After spending 2 years at Village des Createurs (Designer’s Village) in Lyon,  MARRON ROUGE is housed in its own shop “3 in 1”, showroom-workshop-boutique, rue Royale, in Lyon 1 made entirely with recycled pallets to stay in mind upcycled so dear to Jean-Marc Attia.


Marron Rouge showroom recycled with pallets in Lyon 

DESIGN 100%  from Lyon, France

All fashion accessories, and  decorative items are created by Jean-Marc Attia in its showroom workshop. 3 of 4 collections of stuffed animals were created by Parisian designer Marie-Noelle Bayard.



Recycling, upcycling, are the pillars of  Marron Rouge. All recovery processes  of materials are carefully checked. No materials are manufactured for  the creations of Marron Rouge. Tires and tubes are recovered by poor people of Delhi who resell them to a sorting office of an NGO, jeans labels, safety belts are from the manufacturers discontinued items. Textiles are purchased in the textile Delhi market.



After creating the company Marron in 2009, and becoming a major player in recycling in France, setting up a production with Indian NGOs, Marron Rouge launches into local French production with actors of the social economy and locally in Rhône-Alpes Auvergne region



One of the positive impacts will transform waste to promote circular economy of proximity. Marron Rouge will continue to support Indian projects in which it is engaged in duration.

Establish a long-term collaboration with local ESAT for working recycled materials. A Establishment and Service through Work is in France a nursing home work protected, reserved for people with disabilities and for their integration or social and professional reintegration.

French industrialists came into direct contact with Marron Rouge to enhance their waste. The competitive cluster Lyon TECHTERA contacted Marron Rouge to submit French industrialists, sometimes to imagine local design solutions with their waste.

The first prototypes were made with materials recovered from French manufacturers. These items will be available in 2017 on success of this campaign and are being improved for future productions.

The windbreaker created from Parachute cloth production falls fitted by a tailor in the Lyon region. The messenger bag created from the end of production of judo mats fabric mounted by ESAT in the area of Saint- Etienne (France)

Wallets and accessories created from sheets made from recycled materials and printed with a pattern created especially for Marron Rouge  by Mademoiselle Dimanche who designs Textile and ridden by ESAT in the region Stéphanoise

Other materials are being developed. These materials come from specialized textile industry (underwear), technical fabrics from the aviation industry …. In short ideas abound, waste either!

I am open to any discussion and / or proposal for a further step. It will redefine together a new economic model (or not), use (or not) the projects that are “in the pipeline .., “associate, come together, share … I am open to all, without any stress or territory project Feel free to contact us to discuss: Commit, you recycle!


The man of Marron Rouge

At first a self-taught man, he became Chief Operating Officer in computer groups.

Then he went back to school: the INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France. Then humanitarian missions in Africa with the International Red Cross In 2008, as he was fed up and his head full of questions, he “gave up everything” to create Marron Rouge, during an umpteenth trip to India

He is keen on travelling through the five continents (his mother called him “the tramp”). He needs to share, meet men and women of all countries. He is a thoroughgoing optimist who prefers to work in a good mood, and especially with humor. He is a man with human values above all.

Initially, there was “Parrainages Inde”, an association which Jean Marc is a member of since its establishment in 1999. This association helps single women in southern India, to educate their children. Then there were successive trips to this country and in particular that of January 2009.

In 2009, Jean-Marc left his life of devoted “upwardly mobile executive”, to think a little more about himself  and give his professional activities and his life, basically, a human, responsible and sustainable sense.

Each of these trips was an opportunity to learn a little more about the Indian people. He was seduced by the almost permanent smile of this people, the know-how , and « the want to do ». The first step was an ethical trade initiative with players in the social and solidarity economy, then the sale of their products in France. Very quickly, he grew unsatisfied with this simple exchange, and Jean-Marc began to think about design and environment.

Marron Rouge phylosophy was born !


The implementation of this campaign was facilitated by Future of Waste is a program dedicated to innovators and actors working to “make our waste a source of infinite resources”. Through an online platform, and numerous workshops and events, Future of Waste creates a global movement around these new circular solutions. Future of Waste is developed by Make Sense the pioneering support and SUEZ assets.

Companies and associations have chosen carrier bags or accessories to offer strong messages their members or clients.

Some examples


Le Laboratoire Holiste was the first to trust MARRON ROUGE by first ordering cotton bags and jute products with its logo and a large jute tote designed to safely transport the air Bol Jacquier® ( oxygenation method 100% natural). The Imprimerie de la Vallée (Switzerland) has chosen to personalize this model wallet (leather exterior, interior recycled inner tube) for the second time

This shoulder bag model “Rob” recycled inner tube  was choosen by the CFDT Services via a distributor, the Company INCKOO in Paris. It was distributed to the 500 delegates at the 14th congress of the CFDT early June 2015 in Montpellier.
