We are happy to announce that Dorlet, one of the leading European additional suppliers with a strong focus on metal and leather goods, will be complementing the BLUEZONE trims portfolio in September.

Founded in Paris in 1928, the family run business has a rich industrial heritage and a unique know-how passed down from generation to generation.
Initially specialising in the manufacturing and sale of hats and millinery supplies, Dorlet changed to selling lining materials for clothing in 1946, and then changed in a roundabout way 1958 to manufacturing fabric bags and waistbands, and finally in 1967 to sewing threads.

Since the 1980’s, Dorlet has been shifting their focus to devising, designing, developing, manufacturing, creating and selling metal products for ready-to-wear, fashion, sportswear, denim, workwear, shoes and leather goods. In addition, the product range is rounded off by nylon, wood and cotton accessories.

Brass, copper, alloy, iron and stainless steel provide the raw materials for Dorlet’s creations, with the option to tailor-make and personalized products: CAD design with customer logo, colouring and production of a 3D resin prototype are the beginning stages, followed by producing a mold as soon as the shape, material and functionality of the product have been approved.

Carried out in close cooperation with the customer, Dorlet’s design process provides a great freedom in low-cost operations and tests to respond to its customers’ stylistic ideas as well as to their technical and environmental constraints.

Metal trims are certified Oko-tex Standard 100 and complied with REACH regulation.

Dorlet operates out of three continents, Europa, Africa and Asia, close to major textile and leather good production sites, thus being able to provide logistical and technical support. Real-time management, automated stock maintenance (SAP) and 3D prototyping within 48 hours carried out in France are certainly further USPs to be mentioned.

During our next edition of BLUEZONE, Dorlet will be showcasing their latest collection and novelties in Munich. Looking forward to welcome this promissing new entry to the BLUEZONE!
