130 YEARS OF KNOW-HOW - Spring 2019

Perpetuating a thousand years of textile tradition, SAINT JAMES, located a stone’s throw from the Mount-Saint Michel, has always drawn its inspiration from the sea.
Originally a wool mill, SAINT JAMES has always been associated with the iconic nautical sweater. As years went by, this precious and rare know-how brought new silhouettes to life, offering every staples of the nautical wardrobe. To celebrate our 130th anniversary, we embellished our iconic stripes with a French Flag patch. Our way to highlight our pride: our French Identity!
"Vive la France!”

Saint James x The Woolmark Company - Winter 2018

Sharing common values of authenticity and integrity, The Woolmark Company and iconic French brand St James are celebrating 50 years of wool with an exclusive Australian Merino wool anniversary capsule collection.
Using luxurious 100% Merino wool yarn spun from St James’ own mill, the anniversary collection nods to the nautical influence of St James, creating a series of marine-inspired sweaters in a classic Breton stripe.

“Saint James and The Woolmark Company have been building their partnership for half of a century, based upon key values that we both share - sourcing pure virgin 100% Merino wool of the best quality and exploring innovative knitting techniques.” said St James CEO Luc Lesénécal. “This capsule collection was therefore very natural for us, bringing our two brands together as we look towards the future.”
