At the end of the 1930s, a Swiss man founded a lingerie factory in Quimper under the name Armor lux - "armor" is the Breton word for sea, and "lux" can only mean the light on the coast. Many of the garments that are still made in Brittany today also have a maritime character: A signal beyond the borders of the region is the striped sailor's shirt.
The beginning of the enterprise was marked by a number of challenges: The outbreak of war had put an immediate end to the beginning, material scarcity and rationing forced the company to shut down for a few years, but as early as the 1960s it was decided to integrate an in-house dyeing plant into the company in order to have all the manufacturing processes under one roof, from manufacturing the fabrics to quality control. In 1970 the first larger collections of Armor lux were launched on the market, sailor shirts and underwear were added, as were other items of clothing - dresses, trousers and pullovers, as well as hats, caps and scarves, mostly in maritime style. Today, the company's repertoire also includes uniforms, French police officers and their colleagues from the post office are dressed in Quimper at Armor lux, as are employees of the Paris airports and the SNCF state railway.
