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.
