History of Dormeuil

History of Dormeuil

Dormeuil is a French luxury fabric brand that was founded in 1842 by Jules Dormeuil. The company began as a small family business that specialized in importing English fabrics to France. In the early 20th century, the company shifted its focus to creating its own high-quality fabrics.

Dormeuil is known for its innovative use of natural fibers, such as vicuña, cashmere, and mohair, as well as its use of cutting-edge technology in the manufacturing process. The company's fabrics have been used by some of the world's most prestigious fashion houses and tailors, including Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, and Brioni.

In the 1950s, Dormeuil introduced its iconic Tonik fabric, which was a blend of mohair and wool that had a unique luster and wrinkle-resistant properties. The fabric was a hit among stylish men of the time and became a symbol of post-war luxury.

Today, Dormeuil continues to produce high-end fabrics that are sought after by tailors and designers around the world. The company is still family-owned and operated, with headquarters in Paris and a manufacturing facility in England.
