In Kerdroniou, you can visit the site where the company groups its cutting and sewing activities. You can also discover the design and methods department, the dying, knitting and finishing workshops, as well as the storage and sales areas in a 1,500 m² shop. From the yarn to the finished product, the entire production chain is in keeping with its times and is today developing a fair-trade and organic cotton line.
