The horizon outlines Mont-Saint-Michel, feet bathe in the sand. Saint-James originates right in the midst of Normandy’s shores. Their fisherman sweaters and shirts are first quality made of soft natural wool, French Tricotage expertise and their authentic marine esprit alike.
Since early times the village of Saint-James was famous for its wool art. Hence, Léon Legallais opened his spinnery right here, in between the fresh meadows of Lower Normandy, in 1850. Turned into a clothing manufactory in 1889, Saint-James specialises in true French knitwear, distinctive meshes and original patterns. Due to their Gemini technique, a special double weaving method, every shirt consists of a two-layered texture: the outside is woven from 100% pure natural sheep wool, yet the inside is made of cotton.
After assembly each sweater and every shirt runs through Saint-James' very own quality testing: natural wool impurities are dissolved by hand, the garment is passed through water vapour. For in the end, the perfect mesh starts with the most delicate fibre.
