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.

The Armor Lux company also has its own dyeing workshop to dye small or large quantities of ecru knitted fabric resorting to the winch, jet or overflow dyeing processes. The dyeing workshop is Oeko-Tex standard 100 certified which guarantees the absence in the knitted fabric of substances which can harm the health of users.
Armor Lux has its own distribution network of over 50 outlets divided between town-center stores and out-of-town shops of which the concept combines the sale of textile articles and that of quality regional products.
