CHRONOLOGY

2013

Begining of the adventure

The project started from a request from a client in 2013. He challenged us to make an elegant bullet resistant vest since he idealized this luxury model. The idea was set and we dived into this project hoping there were a market for it to succeed.

2013 - 2015

Collaboration with Protecop™

On paper, it was a challenge : bullet resistance, aestheticism, lightness and certification. It took us about two years to develop the perfect product. There were a bit more than 15 people involved : stylists, design studios in France and Italy, pattern makers, our partner Protecop™. We even benefited from the expertise of the greatest and most famous French criminologist of today - and incidentally consultant for the CIA.

2015

FURTIV* was finally born in 2015

As luck would have it, the presentation of this model was scheduled for the Milipol show in 2015, in the midst of the wave of attacks in Paris. An unfortunate coincidence that immediately put FURTIV in the spotlight. *bullet resistant collection name
