The Monnet company was started in Montceau les Mines Burgundy, when the former coal mining area also saw the rise of one of the prominent textile industries in France.

At the time the pits were still in operation, housewises knitted garments to sell while their husbands toiled deep underground. 
In the 1930's, Mr Monnet, an established hosier and haberdasher of Montceau les Mines took to marketing local home-knitted customized products to his patrons. Such was the demand for his products that his company decided to manufacture the products itself, supporting the local workers exceptional talents.

In the following years, as the number of ski resorts grew, this inspired Mr Monnet to develop ski socks targeted at the growing numbers of alpine skiers.  From the 1936 Olympic Games in Garmish-Partenkirchen through to the Calgary Olympic Games in 1988, Monnet was exclusive supplier of ski socks to the French Ski Team. Monnet resumed business with the French Ski Federation in July 2013 signing a 5-year official supply agreement for all French Cross Country Ski Teams. 

Every single pair of Monnet socks is manufactured in their mill in Montceau les Mines. Monnet proudly defines itself as a strictly French manufacturing company, offering unrivalled French-made products.
