Le Minor

LE MINOR was a label created in Pont-l’Abbé, very near Quimper (Brittany, France) in 1936.

Since then, the brand has succeeded in incorporating the region's proud nautical textile heritage into its garments. First purchased in the 1980s by the Manufacture de Bonneterie Lorentaise in Guidel, near Lorient, it was taken over in 1987 by the Grammatico family from Northern France who gave the knitwear and hosiery business a new lease of life.

LE MINOR manufactured clothing for the French Navy up until 2010 (when the latter decided to use suppliers from Romania). This precious heritage makes LE MINOR the uncontested leader in nautical workwear. The quality is based on long acquired expertise and is irreproachable. 15 years ago, all the cotton and wool used in the manufacture came from northern France. Today there are no textile mills left in France and the supplies come from Germany or Belgium (cotton) and Switzerland, Austria or Italy for wool. The fabrics are dyed in South West France.

Sailor suits, Breton sweaters, beanie hats, scarves, the whole wardrobe of the Breton sailor and the National Navy continue to be designed and manufactured by LE MINOR, the best of its kind.
