A beautifully-crafted history of Maison Montagut, creators and innovators of the finest French knitwear.
Experts in luxurious knitwear, Maison Montagut holds a unique place in fashion; their knits embody the essence of French chic, without ostentation.
This volume retraces the history of the family business, internationally renowned for 140 years, from southern France to China. A pioneer in the silk industry since 1880, Montagut produced women’s stockings between the world wars. After World War II, Montagut transformed itself into a knitwear company and developed the innovative fil lumière-luminous thread-used to create unique polos for men and women that were a hit first with baby boomers and then in Asia.
Today, the sixth-generation Maison Montagut’s brand concept has expanded to refined, timeless decorative objects for the home, travel accessories, and baby gifts, in addition to its fashion line. This beautifully crafted volume-celebrating Maison Montagut’s venerable history and exciting contemporary collaborations-is a tribute to their innovative and creative designs.
