1 The design of a pea coat model
The models, materials and finishes of our pea coats are imagined and designed by our crew in our offices in Paimpol, Brittany.
Studied in detail to guarantee solidity and functionality, our prototype peacoats are tested for sale in our stores in the port of Paimpol.
3 The choice of materials
We pay a lot of attention to the choice of buttons, linings and all those little details that make our pea coats unique.
We are committed to favouring the use of French raw materials, respectful of the environment, human health and animal well-being.
We use French waterproof woollen cloth, an insulating, breathable and comfortable fabric. Our historical supplier is based in the Tarn, an exceptional French company, certified “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant”.
THE ORIGIN OF THE RAW MATERIALS USED
On the French waterproof wool sheet that we use, every detail of the peacoat is marked there to have a perfect cut.
5 Cutting and placement
Once the marking is complete, each part of the pea coat is carefully cut in one of our partner production units.
All the pieces of the peacoat are then joined together to form the finished product.
100% of our pea coats are made in Europe. We decide, depending on the season, the availability of factories, the volume and the models, to produce our pea coats in a one of our partner units.
The workshops that we work with are selected according to their know-how and their availability. The quality result is identical from one model to another.
8 Quality Control
Every detail of each peacoat is rigorously checked at several levels of the chain throughout the manufacturing process.
Our crew carries out the last check in Paimpol before offering our pea coats for sale.
9 The distribution
Dalmard Marine pea coats are available in our stores in the port of Paimpol, in our partner sales outlets and on the Internet.
10 The usage of the pea coat
By repairing small snags and giving maintenance advice to our customers, we increase the life span of the pea coat. If a Dalmard Marine pea coat is worn for 10 years, it emits between 10 and 15kg of CO2/year. If it is worn for 25 years, it emits 4 to 6kg of CO2/year.
11 The end of life of the pea coat
Thanks to our pea coat transformation and recycling program, we give a second life to the pea coats you no longer wear.
