Pic de Nore Gaining Height

Specialized in professional clothing, La Manufacture Regain created in 2003 the brand Pic de Nore, which was named after the highest point of the Montagne Noire.

The brand manufactures limited series of sweaters and accessories, combining strong design – signature bold patterns and bright colors – with traditional craftsmanship. All garments are knitted locally in the Castres workshops, numbered and partially made-to-measure as they are available in three different sleeve lengths and chest heights.

A meticulous quality control – the finishes are crucial because of the Made in France label. Photo credit: Pic de Nore.

To preserve the precious know-how of the workers, some of whom have been employed for more than 40 years, head of the company Laurent Brunas has surrounded himself with fashion experts and proudly helps promote the Made in France label.
