Our socially-responsible
Because I.Code is about helping each other out more than anything, between women but that’s not all.
The brand chose to undertake to support and celebrate those who have 1000 projects on the go,
those who dream of being entrepreneurial, who want to take (over) control.
les audacieuses
Les audacieuses
Les Audacieuses is a programme that is fully covered by La Ruche. It supports women who want to create a company to meet an issue in society, all over France.
What is La Ruche?
La Ruche, is a structure that helps and supports start-up projects, dedicated to social innovation. Co-working, incubation, events, partnerships, there’s lots on the list of actions set up which aims to encourage projects to come to life and be implemented that have an impact on the whole country. It was set up in 2008, and has 10 spaces today, from Paris to Marseille, St Nazaire to Montpellier, to accommodate small and large companies, public authorities and municipalities in ecosystems favourable to hatching and spinning off ideas and projects, by drawing on known social and economic dynamics.
and I.Code in all that?
The brand has chosen to make a commitment to support the Girl Bosses of tomorrow, and this is what’s behind the brand joining the “Les Audacieuses” (Bold Women) programme, supported by La Ruche.
I.Code gives the Audacieuse personalised support, putting her in touch with in-house experts about current hot topics, to refine her project. After that, the brand rolls out a communication campaign around this partnership and respective products.
A full-on Girl Power partnership, to wake up the Girl Boss that’s in each of us and rave about “Woman Can”!

Find out about two “audacieuses”, Marie and Sofia, who we supported in 2022. They completely share Mademoiselle I.Code’s values, like making your dreams come true without setting yourself any limits, being conscious of the planet’s challenges, and making life sparkle, today and tomorrow!
“Take back control of your curls”
Sofia Taleb Benjelloun created Kurl Power, a brand of natural, zero-waste products – solid shampoo and conditioner – that are specially designed for curly hair, with a fun, fresh tone and a touch of self-mockery. Sofia found the idea through looking at the women in her life, her mother, aunts, and cousins. What she observed was striking, they all wanted to look the same, like a slim woman with straight hair. Sofia said Stop! Stop to orders! Stop to beauty that’s all the same! Her first action? Stop straightening your hair and take (back) control! The power of accepting your rebellious hair, the power of accepting what it’s like, yourself as you are, all unique. It’s more than a brand, Sofia wants to get a message across.
“Giving a 2nd life to marine
plastic waste”
Marie Jagrik, a young 37-year-old entrepreneur launched Wakae, a line of sports clothes with an innovative concept. That of giving plastic bottles collected from the sea a second life to make the yarn for her fabrics. That means outfits that are both responsible but also perform well and are nice to wear. How do they do that? These bottles are ground down and melted to be turned into yarn. It’s a process that results in polyester that uses half as much energy to make it and releases 32% less CO2. It is then woven in specialised workshops in Spain and Portugal to become a stretchy, resistant and comfortable fabric.Wakae has set itself the objective that within three years a second life will be given to more than 100,000 plastic bottles.
I.COde x redonner
Day after day, we are working for fashion that’s every more responsible.
This season, we have decided to go even further by joining forces with Redonner to collect the clothes you don't wear any more... that you have forgotten about in your wardrobe.
International Women’s Day
For this emblematic day, I.Code is making a commitment by creating two exclusive T-shirts. All of the profits generated from the sale of these two T-shirts in March 2023 will be donated to the charity Femmes des Territoires which aims to develop women’s entrepreneurial activities.

Supporting our partner

We also contributed to the solidarity efforts made in France through:
  • Giving clothes to the French Salvation Army
  • Accommodating 9 Ukrainians in Saint-Macaire-en-Mauges
  • Renovating and fitting accommodation
  • Helping register Ukrainian children in school
  • French lessons
  • Offering employment in our workshop, with a vehicle provided
  • Financial assistance so they can support themselves
