Danton : french workwear company founded in 1931

HISTORY OF DANTON

 

In 1931, Mr Gabriel DANTON established the company 'MANUFACTURE TEXTILE DU CENTRE' at Châtres sur Cher in the center of France.

The brand 'DANTON' was registered in 1935 and the nice logo defined as it is still today: a red diamond with DANTON name written in such an original and remarkable font.

The workshop was manufacturing workwear overalls, blousons, pants, cook’s jackets and pants, aprons for gardening.

In the 70’s and 80’s, DANTON workwear was marketed mainly in Paris, center and North East of France. Retailers were used to pick up goods for replenishment directly at M.T.C. office and warehouse located 40 Rue Croix des Petits Champs downtown Paris, near Palais Royal.

M.T.C. was also supplying a few public administrations like the city of PARIS and companies, such as the metro in Paris.

For the last past years, DANTON has been successfully developped in Japan. While keeping the spirit of french workwear, Japanese design has reshaped traditional styles. From 2017, sales will be considered internationally to spread success worldwide.
