For over two centuries, Arpin carries on a tradition from the French Savoy. The gestures of the masters of wool have virtually remained the same and it is now Jacques Arpin, the 8th generation of the name, who perpetuates the family tradition.
Arpin is listed as a living heritage company. It’s one of the very last companies which still produces from raw material (wool) till the finished product. The whole process, washing the wool, sorting, carding, spinning, weaving, still happens at the same spot with the same machines as two hundred years ago. A unique conservation of cultural heritage!
Arpin – French mountain Wool
The passion for wool is omnipresent, it is sourced from sheep grazing in the four valleys surrounding their headquarters (Tarentaise, Beaufortain, Maurienne and Val D’Aoste). The nearby Versoyen river provides the water they need to generate electricity and wash their wool. Products made with the greatest respect for nature.
