In the mid-19th century, after the Industrial Revolution, the spinning and dyeing of yarns, which had previously been done by hand in ateliers, was industrialized by Léon Lugaret, then mayor of St. James, and became part of the textile industry, which became a major industry in the region.
The high quality wool from the sheep that grazed on the flats of Mont Saint-Michel produced the marine sweaters that were an important work wear for the local fishermen and sailors, and were the prototype for the practicality of today's St. James shirts.
