At the time of the Enlightenment, the works of a "Bonnetier', french for hosier, was to make socks and hats to sale at the market. This craftanship , resulting from the arrival of a new technique to weave the thread , revolutionized the ways clothes were made. This new technique made it possible to weave the thread giving it elasticity which prompted the creation of new products such as the invention of the sock. We chose this name because it recalls the work of the craftsman and the pride of a job well done, but it also reminds the innovation behind it all.
We offer three categories of products, a collection of outdoor clothing made of merino wool, wool socks, and our famous "funky t-shirts". Our Merino wool clothing and wool socks are made entirely in Quebec and it is all of our products that get finished in right here, in Montreal. This way, we make sure to give work to a maximum of local business during the manufacturing process, thereby reducing the environmental footprint of the products. All the silkscreen prints are hand-made in our "atelier" to ensure the quality of the product from beginning to end.
