Since its establishment in 1937, Dodo has placed respect for human rights and the defense of local manufacturing in France at the heart of its development strategy. HOME HERITAGE continues to pursue this commitment today.

This commitment to the environment has increased over the past decades. Duvet packaging has thus been cut in half to reduce transport and product wrapping volumes. Fillings made of fibres from recycled plastic bottles have been developed, and a comprehensive gender equality policy has been put in place to achieve a near optimal gender equality index.


More conscious than ever that the longevity of its operations will depend on the reduction of its impact, in 2020, HOME HERITAGE decided to go further and fully commit to a global corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy by joining the United Nations Global Compact. In a globalised and ethically sensitive textile sector, this membership is a way to reinforce a strong commitment to key issues such as human rights, labour rights, environmental protection, and the fight against corruption.


The people who form the group's various companies and their expertise represent HOME HERITAGE's greatest asset. As a major economic player established in various French regions (Moselle, Vosges, Sarthe, Nord, Rhône...), we've placed utmost importance on the growth of our employees, inclusion, and equal opportunities.

While the textile industry has largely moved its production outside of the country, the group is committed to manufacturing locally in France and reviving areas affected by job losses. It has made a long-term commitment to local employment by continually investing in its production tools and by developing ambitious training projects to deal with the shortage of certain skills (seamstresses, cutters, feather and down experts, warpers, etc.).

More and more trainees and apprentices are being welcomed to foster future talent. Invaluable expertise in the production of feathers and down (Drouault) has been recognised by the 'Living Heritage Company' certification. This is an acknowledgement of excellence for a century-old craft tradition and a guarantee of quality for our customers.


In the face of growing environmental challenges, it is essential to offer more and more ethical products to customers. This is why work has been underway for several years to develop ranges that include recycled materials, such as quilts and pillows made from recycled fibres and/or natural recycled fillings.

Similarly, we use natural materials that have a limited impact on resources and biodiversity, such as organic cotton, linen, or anti-dust-mite treatments made from 100% natural active ingredients such as neem extract and linseed oil. Today, our brands offer almost exclusively products that are OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified, a quality seal that guarantees the absence of toxic substances to protect the health of customers and workers.

In 2021, certain packaging was switched to recyclable, reusable plastic or cardboard. Partnerships have been set up to monitor the end-of-life of products and encourage recycling through initiatives in our shops.


While we are keen to make progress regarding the commitments we have undertaken, we are also well aware that much remains to be done. HOME HERITAGE is fully focussed, along with all its suppliers and partners, on improving practices and finding solutions to the social and environmental challenges facing the textile sector. Together we determine our priority issues, guided by a clear and ambitious roadmap.
