Poster by Leonetto Cappiello for Mossant
Poster by Leonetto Cappiello for Mossant with linen backing, 1938.
The headquarters Mossant was founded in 1833 by Casimir Mossant.
The company is developing thanks in particular to the development of the railway, which allows for distant supplies and expeditions.
In the 1920s, the firm Mossant is at its peak. The factory employs 1,200 workers and produces up to 2000 hats per day, nearly half of which is in the United States.
After 1929, the economic crisis affected exports and the company diversified its production of felt (bags, berets, ...). Hat manufacturing activity declined and, in the 1950s, the factory's activity was converted into apparel until 1985, when the company was wound up.
