About Guy Cotten


Creator of the renowned “yellow oilskin”, for over 50 years Guy Cotten has clothed workers from all horizons and lovers of the sea.

These have been fifty years of ideas, innovation and experimentation with a view to greater comfort, more durable wear, and safety for people at sea, farmers and for outdoor leisure.


Over fifty years ago, Guy Cotten set up a small workroom at the back of a garage in Concarneau. Today the company employs over 300 people throughout the world.

These have been more than fifty years of ideas, innovation, and experiments in search of greater comfort, wear, and safety, withstanding foul weather and protecting men at sea, as well as in farming, industry and outdoor leisure activities.
