This historic French company was born in the 1930s in Paris. However, due to the war and the German advance, the founder decided to leave Paris for Lyon. Soon, the workshop was equipped with Rachel looms, allowing the workers to produce their own fabric. In 1947, one of the looms was dedicated to knitting jersey for the French Navy, focusing, in particular, on the marinière (or breton shirt). These looms are from the 1850's and have the unique ability to create intricate patterns, such as the tangled stripes of the sailor's uniform.
Our manufacturer takes special care in the choice of yarns used and the way the sailor's jersey is made. The fabrics, as well as the manufacturing, are made in France, thus guaranteeing the quality and durability of this exigent piece.
