Orcival borrows its name from a small town in the Puy-de-Dôme department in Auvergne in central France. Created and established in 1939, the company supplied the French navy for decades with the authentic and iconic striped Marine Nationale t-shirts and then broadened its range with Breton marinières in long-lasting heavy cotton, basque shirts. Since 1939, all products have been made in France and is and have always been made in 100% cotton. For years, emphasis has been put on right fitting and manufacturing quality.
