The history of our company – Jean Sabine – a fabrics specialist in Flers, France

Named after its founder, the company Jean Sabine has been located in Orne, right in the heart of Normandy since 1955. Our whole team welcomes you in our specialized workshop. Taken over in 1990 by the current management, Jean Sabine keeps on combining the tradition of textile and the modernity for its customer service.

We were first specialized in shoe lining. Our company then expanded its activities with Sabine-Charbet, a brand new sales department dedicated to protective fabrics (tarpaulin canvas, Sergé, numerous armors, with or without backing).

The following years were made significant by the inclusion of new manufacturing tools focused on the laminating and thermo-adhesive coating fields. Nowadays, a third of our turnover comes from export to Europe, Asia, Maghreb, the United States and Canada.
