A KNOW-HOW FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION
With its experience with the most demanding customers, such as the French Navy, for whom it produced the officer's sweater for 40 years, the company has a wealth of know-how that has been passed down from generation to generation in its factory based in Guidel, near Lorient.
Today, Le Minor imagines and reinvents emblematic Breton pieces such as the sailor sweater or the sailor's hat. This requires the use of old machines, which allow to make clothes of a great quality, and a skill which requires a rare and precise know-how. This is why the training of the new generation is done in-house, in the workshop, directly in contact with the machines and the experience of the seamstresses. This training is essential to preserve this ancestral art.
entreprise du patrimoine vivant
Cette exigence permet de préserver l’emploi local, et de créer des vêtements qui ont du sens et qui traversent le temps. Cette sauvegarde et cette transmission de savoir-faire ont valu à la bonneterie 100% bretonne Le Minor de recevoir l'exigeant label "entreprise du patrimoine vivant" en avril 2023.
