SAINT JAMES has been drawing inspiration from this sea facing, windswept land of sailors sandwiched between Normandy and Brittany in France and a stone’s throw from Mont Saint-Michel for well over a century. Hopping on the bandwagon of a thousand-year-old textile tradition SAINT JAMES began knitting the famous sailor ‘sweater’ in the XIXth century. This sweater made from wool from the land was so tightly knit that it was considered to be waterproof and perfect for sailors bashed by intemperate weather conditions when fishing in the freezing cold seas of the North Atlantic. As the years have passed by, fishermen, sailors and pleasure boaters have turned this authentic sailor sweater into an iconic item of clothing and by doing so helped to raise the profile of SAINT JAMES to that of a great French brand with a unique savoir-faire.
