The years of war and occupation did not affect Walter Hubacher's confidence and certainty, even though the factory's activities came to a halt during this period.
1980 - The Rise
In the early 1980s, the company grew to 600 employees.
1990 - A New Beginning
In the early 90's, Walter Hubacher crossed paths with two childhood friends, Jean-Guy Le Floch and Michel Guéguen, who bought the Bonneterie d'Armor from him.

Our knit expertise
It all starts with a cotton thread that unwinds like a cocoon. It is chosen with the utmost care and then knitted in our workshops.

Our knitwear protects you.
And the model comes to life...
Once the knitwear has been washed and dried, it is time to make the models created by the company's stylists come to life.
