Our Code of Ethics
We provide rehabilitation projects in and out of prisons with the aim of activating inmates and helping the victims of crime.
Art courses and enshrined craftsmanship establish a solid foundation for our ambitions; inmates decide the extent to which they participate in the creation process.
Inmates participate either by inspiring Project Papillon designs, providing creative input, or by being involved in the actual manufacturing of the final product.
Inmates are naturally paid an hourly wage and licence fees in return for their contributions.
We channel a part of the profit from the products to projects and charity work that aim to provide relief for victims of crime and to prevent crime.
When we need machinery or personnel that is not available in prisons, we follow our Code of Ethics by making our products in other sites the most sustainable ways possible.
In these cases (as well as in prisons) we aspire to use organic raw materials and production sites, where good working conditions and reduced environmental impact are ensured.
