1950's Vintage French knitting factory sizing guide - Tricotage Marmoutier. We recently sourced a number of very original industrial items from a small historic knitting factory in France, Tricotage Marmoutier, an old established knitwear factory in Alsace. One of our favourite finds was these highly unusual 'boards' which came from the quality control department where they were used to fit test the garment sizing. They have no practical use but we fell in love with their infinite decorative possibilities and are height adjustable (from roughly 136.5cm to 172.5cm).They look best grouped together and please note the black paint is not blackboard paint. When we brainstormed some uses we came up with; 'The ultimate jacket/jumper stand' - 'Separation screen like they used to have on business class flights (those were the days)' - 'Brilliant for signage' - 'Jumper sizing if you fancy some knitting' ... over to you. We would simply prop them in a corner of a room, their height at means they are tall enough to have impact. Ta da. Please note: this listing is for one French knitting factory sizing guide. Board size is: 52cm x 86.5cm.
