The Bonneterie d’Armor was founded in 1938 in Quimper from the desire of one man: Walter Hubacher. At the age of 31, this Swiss man of Alemannic origin made the bet to create and produce high-quality underwear under the Armor Lux brand name.
Armor Lux now has a study and design office which creates over 1,500 new models each year. It relies on a team in charge of producing prototypes and developing new products for its customers.
Armor Lux has one of the latest vertically integrated textile production tools. It is composed of two industrial sites: The first one, located in the town center, includes the knitting and dyeing workshops and the analytical laboratory. Armor Lux owns 85 circular knitting machines of various gauges and diameters which enable it to produce in large quantities the main types of plain or striped knitted fabric (Jersey, Côte, Interlock) used to make cotton clothing and underwear.
