In early 1950, Primo Zelanti began selling worker’s clothes in Bourgogne. The business grew and in 1956 he created his own brand – LE LABOUREUR.
His inspiration were the traditional shirts, jackets, vests and trousers used by farmers and workers for generations – clothes that through the ages had evolved to perfectly fit their purpose.
What remains is pure function and an understated elegance. Neither more nor less than needed, and intended to last – the everyday wear and tear eventually telling the story of a life well lived and loved.
60 years later, Le Laboureur is still a family business. The small factory in Bourgogne and its 30 employees produce their well-respected worker’s wear in cotton, wool and linen for anyone who values true and lasting craftsmanship at great value.
