The advantage of the textile fender.



The company did not set up in just any building. This old mill was chosen for its history:

The workshop is located in Aire-sur-la-Lys, a town rich in military heritage. The mill is a part of these vestiges. In 1682, it was built by the compte of Robelin, engineer to the King of France, by former soldiers whose wounds prevented them from continuing to serve the army... Hence its name: Moulin des Invalides.
