History of the product
THE RINGS ARE THE FIRST EMBLEM OF THE FRENCH SPORT!
At the end of XIXth and at the begining of the XXth centuary, the track & field, football, rugby, fencing and many other sports French teams become known outside the borders by wearing the 2 rings. At that time they were the symbol of the most influential French sport organization. These rings have also inspired the founder of the symbol of nowadays’ worldwide largest and most famous sport organism.
Created in 1887, the organization U.S.F.S.A « Union des Sociétés Françaises de Sports Athlétiques » disapeared at the beginning of the 20ies. The rings are then gradually associated with the rooster who definetly substitute them to become the unremovable symbol of the French sport. The two rings which remains the first ever emblem of the French sport since 1887 are back to a new life, they inspired our collections and we love to tell their story with enthousiasm !
