Once the Caulliez yarn is dyed, it arrives in our Quimper factory in spools, ready to be knitted. Our teams take care of a hundred or so circular machines, some of which date back to 1938, when our company was founded.
Our fleet of knitting machines is one of the largest in Europe, which allows us to knit our Breton striped shirts in a wide range of gauges and diameters. We chose a rustic jersey stitch for our pre-order Breton striped shirt. This soft and hard-wearing 250 g/m2 knitted fabric guarantees warmth and longevity.
Before entering the cutting and confectioning process, the knitwear is washed, wrung out, dried and ironed in order to guarantee its dimensional stability, one of the important quality metrics of our product. This dyeing/finishing stage is certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO TEX®.
