Dalmard Marine is a Breton brand with a proud history. Formed in 1922 in Paimpol (Brittany) by Armand Le Guen, the company produced oilskins and fisherman’s smocks for those fishing off the coast of Iceland, who faced dreadful weather conditions in the seas of the High North.
In the 1950s, the company specialised in the production of waterproof wool garments to protect sailors against bad weather and the dampness aboard the ship. Since then, the pea coat, the iconic French cultural symbol, has become its leading product.
Born on a land of travelers, Dalmard Marine is also manufacturer and official textile distributor of the Belem Foundation. A part of the sales of its capsule collection contribute to the preservation of the oldest three-masted sailing in the World.
Co-led since 2017 by Thierry, Soizic and Maxime Dalmard, the business is deeply committed to its values of authenticity and quality.
Over four generations, Dalmard Marine has endlessly reinvented itself. After designing the first sailor sweater for children in 1965, in partnership with Tricomer, the business produced a yellow kabic in 1998, working with the famous French brand, Agnès B, for the Japanese market. It was in this vein that Dalmard Marine collaborated in 2019 with the international fashion brand Eden Park on the design of a striped navy blue wool broadcloth pea coat.
Today, over 200 outlets in France and across the world, together with online partners, have put their trust in the brand.
