The Arpin factory first saw the light of day in Seez-Saint-Bernard, in 1817.  It is still the same spot where, to this very day, Arpin’s superb products are manufactured. Considered a symbol of incomparable style and ultimate point of reference for all those who ‘live’ and love mountains on a daily basis, or for their leisure pursuits. The various production stages, which have not changed for almost two centuries (a total of up to 24 steps, depending on the fabric), are carried out on machines which are now listed as part of the National Heritage. Arpin also look at the future, combining tradition and innovation in its collections which perfectly harmonise between mountain and modern style.
