A collection for all Napoleon enthusiasts

200 years later, Napoleon I continues to fascinate. Thousands of works are dedicated to him (there are more books on Napoleon than days that have passed since his death). While the biopic on Napoleon directed by Ridley Scott has been in theaters since November 22, Maison Broussaud returns to the origins of its collection dedicated to the emperor. Maison Broussaud Napoleon socks

This Maison Broussaud collection is above all a family story. Maxime Broussaud, fourth generation of Broussauds, is passionate about history and in particular that of Napoleon Bonaparte. An excellent reason, when we have been making socks in the family since 1938, to decide to make a pair. It is therefore this passion which is at the origin of the creation of our very first pair of Napoleon socks.

4 years ago, Aymeric and Alexandra Broussaud, directors of the sock factory of the same name, knitted 3 pairs of socks bearing the image of Napoleon for the 18th birthday of their son, who had been passionate about the Emperor since he was very young. . They are launching a small production for the members of the association to which Maxime belongs.

4 years later, at the request of enthusiasts, this collection has grown, thousands of pairs have been manufactured and are sold in national museums. Napoleon's N, the imperial eagle, bees, the coat of arms, the laurel wreath... our Maison Broussaud collection dedicated to Napoleon now includes around ten models of socks, which can now be matched with boxers , a sweater, a pair of slippers or even cushions, all made in France.
