Founding of the SAINT-JAMES spinning plant
Léon LEGALLAIS

Around 1850, Saint-James, a commune in Lower Normandy, located 20 kilometers from Mont Saint-Michel experienced a real industrial adventure.
The Legallais family started to spin and dye locally produced wool. This was then resold as skeins and balls of wool to the haberdasheries of Brittany and Normandy, later as underwear : real woolen shirts which gave birth to the fisherman's sweater.

It was the Mayor of Saint-James, Léon LEGALLAIS, who transformed a workshop into a real industry.

 

 

1929

The Company became a Public Limited Company
