Doré Doré – a French brand with a long-time history. It begins around 1819 with Jean Baptiste Doré; The craftsman suggests to his peasant neighbors to buy all yarns from a little town near the Seine named Fontain les Grés; where people craft hosiery at home. Even the selling was accomplished jointly in Maison Doré (the trade union founded by J.B. Doré). The actual brand DD Doré Doré was established in 1862, when two stirps started to carry on the business together after a marriage. Already one year later the first Cotton machines where in use and the industrial mass production started. At the World Exhibition 1867 in Paris the company Doré Doré was awarded with a gold medal. In 1880 the company opened their first store in Paris to extend the sales. The quantity of staff grows to more than 1000 employees. The employees even got cheap apartments and welfare service, thanks to the social dedication of their traders. In 1936 Doré Doré started to use modern double cylinder knitting machines. And with ''Sebastienne“, the first stay-up stocking, the company raises a monument in 1966. Today Doré Doré is not only one of the best hosiery manufacturer in France.
