Pyrenex Coming Soon To Stuarts London
The History Of The Brand
Pyrenex specialises in the use of down and feathers for its garments and has become a go-to label for quality garments for both men and women. The brand is a French clothing company that has been going for over 150 years being passed down the Crabos families generations. It all began when Abel Crabos started the Pyrenex movement simply by collecting feathers from local farms and markets in and around his village. Hidden away in the foothills of the Pyrenees, it soon turned into a family business with his son Rene joining by the 1860s. The pivotal moment for the business was when Rene’s wife created the first down jackets during World War II to protect prisoners from the cold.
By 1960, the third generation grew into the next leaders of the brand and innovated the brands product line by introducing more styles and bedding using down and feathers. This innovation continued with the creation of the Sleeping Bag. All this success lead to Pyrenex becoming an official brand of the company and really kick started the journey to where the brand is today.
By the 1970’s a variety of new jackets were introduced all of which encompassed the core values of the brand from when it first began. By the 80s, the brand started to branch away from the adventure style coats and looked more at everyday wear such as gilets and jackets.
