Born in Paris in 1977, Arnaud Brunois has a degree in applied foreign languages and significant experience in the tourism industry. He led a scientific NGO for about ten years. Passionate about the world of textiles, while being in love with nature and the animal world, he spontaneously turned to the faux fur sector in 2016. By launching a website, collaborating with certain brands and visiting fashion schools, Arnaud Brunois has been able to build an experience in this field. He was then spotted by ECOPEL in order to organize the group's communication but also to begin the search for new eco-friendly materials. His work at ECOPEL today consists in imagining new ways of conceiving fur, between recycling, biomanufacturing and circular economy.
