Chaussautes Broussaud

Broussaud: a family story of Limousin socks.

Aymeric and Alexandra Broussaud took over the helm of a business that had been passed down over the generations. Here, they throw open the doors to their factory, so let’s go inside!

The story of socks by Broussaud is a story about a family, and about couples, too. Following in the footsteps of his grandparents and parents, Aymeric took over the reins accompanied by his wife, Alexandra. “My grandmother was the daughter of the local grocer in a village called Cars, in Haute-Vienne. My grandfather was born in Limoges, and was salesman. He fell in love with her as she sat making socks in the corner. Together, they decided that they could perhaps make a living from it.”
