LE MINOR WOOLEN COATS
The garment, for Le Minor, is also the Kabig, since the 50s. It was originally a work garment, worn mainly by fishermen and Breton workers. This garment is generally a short jacket, made of woolen cloth with a hood and is characterized by a pocket sewn on the front. Worn by the oldest as well as the youngest, it has delighted generations of Bretons. The wool sheet, from which Le Minor coats are made, is a material that has allowed seamstresses and dressmakers to create and tailor garments that can be worn in wind and snow. The wool, woven, is improved by the Foulage to give a woolen sheet. In the 1950s, Le Minor became one of the leading manufacturers of Kabig. Soon after, Le Minor was inspired by the Kabig to create more modern woolen coats, with trendy cuts, sometimes more fitted at the waist, and new colors. This small ecru coat for children, slightly trapezoidal, dating from the 70s, is a testimony of our ancestral know-how.
OUR SECOND HAND CONCEPT
In November 2020, we launched the Gwenner Glaz: Green Friday in Breton. The concept is simple: collect your old clothes, all eras, and offer in return to our customers vouchers. With all these returns, we were able to open a second hand fashion department, with carefully selected second hand clothes. Please note: all our second hand clothes are second hand clothes, usually already worn. They may therefore have traces of wear. Nevertheless, we have sorted them, selected them carefully, cleaned them and repaired them when necessary (if necessary, this is always specified). Non-repairable garments were recycled in the same way as all our production scraps. We have classified the second hand clothes in 3 categories: 1 - Very good condition: garment that has been worn very little, with no defects, and no wear and tear 2 - Good condition: garment worn and washed several times, with slight traces of wear that are mentioned in the description, but no defects or repairs 3 - Fair condition: garment worn and washed several times, which has one or more defects or repairs, which are mentioned in the description and photographed Here, this is a garment in very good condition.
