Armor lux. Maritime Style from Brittany.
"Armor" is the Breton word for sea, and "lux" can only mean the light on the coast. A maritime style, in any case, is what characterises many of the garments produced by Armor lux, a company set up by a Swiss man in the Breton town of Quimper at the end of the 1930s – sweaters, shirts, dresses, trousers, hats, caps and scarves. In the 1960s, Armor lux established its own dyeing workshop so that all manufacturing processes were gathered under one roof, from fabric production to quality controls. The first major collections were introduced onto the market in 1970. Today, the company's repertoire also includes uniforms. The French police and their colleagues from the postal service are fitted out by Armor lux, as are the employees of Paris's airports and the state railway organisation SNCF. The garments in our collection are made by Armor lux exclusively from certified organically grown cotton.
Armor lux. Maritime Garments from Brittany.
Tellingly, “armor” is the Breton word for sea, and “lux” cannot mean anything else than the magic light at Brittany’s coast. In keeping with their brand’s name, Armor lux design many of their jumpers and shirts, dresses, trousers, hats, caps and scarves in a maritime style. The company, based in Quimper and founded by a Swiss at the end of the 1930s, combines simple, comfortable cuts, classic colours and uncompromising quality of materials and craft. The main production facility is still the company’s headquarter in France while, to a small extent, branches in Madagascar and Tunisia support the production. Armor lux processes organic-certified cotton for the selected textiles we present you here.
