Visit our atelier

The discovery of the atelier (manufacturing facility)

Visiting the workshops is a real immersion in the universe of SAINT JAMES. It all starts here in the city of the same name: Saint-James.
"Les Tricots SAINT JAMES" invites you to discover their traditional know-how of making Breton Striped Shirts and sailor sweaters by opening the doors of their workshops to you, a stone's throw from Mont Saint-Michel.
Since 1889, SAINT JAMES has perpetuated the French artisanal tradition in textile clothing and was labeled a Living Heritage Company in 2015. Come and meet craftswomen and -men of excellent know-how and learn the story and manufacturing steps of our infamous "real sailor sweater" with a knit so tight that it is said to be waterproof.

When to visit the workshops?

Visits run from Monday to Thursday, at 10:30 am and 2 pm. During French school holidays (all zones combined), visits occur Monday to Friday from 10:30 am to 2 pm. In case of strong demand, we have the possibility of offering you additional time slots.
