Since its formation in 1922, Dalmard Marine has taken inspiration from seafarer clothing styles, fabrics and emblems to create timeless models. The kabig, one of its flagship pieces, was a hooded jacket designed in the 19th century by “goémoniers” (seaweed farmers) in Brittany, to protect themselves against bad weather. The women's kabig designed for decades by the Paimpol company is a three-quarter coat made from tightly woven wool. It has a hood, a double notched pocket at the front and stitched shoulder pads to prevent run-off from the rain. Its diamond-shaped buttons, or toggles, are made out of boxwood. The notched stitching technique is used to prevent wear and tear.
As a matter of course, Breizh Angel collaborated with Dalmard Marine to revisit the traditional kabig. The collaboration between these two Breton brands gave life to a feminine kabig, chic and casual. This model was designed from French raw materials. Made of 80% waterproof wool, this kabig features stitched braces, round buttons, slightly gilded black and laces at the pockets. It exists in 2 colors: navy and red.
In limited edition, this revisited kabig is currently on sale in several shops in the Western France: Comptoir de la Mer at Erquy and Dahouêt (22), Manola at Guingamp (22), N°10 at Perros-Guirec (22), L’art Buste at Brest (29), Open etc. at Lesneven (29), Lady V at Dol de Bretagne (35), Crazy Republic at Rennes, Nantes and Saint Grégoire (35 et 44), Socalis at Saint Nazaire (44), Armoire de Fille at Carnac (56).
