Jitrois is a French company, founded by Jean-Claude Jitrois in 1981, which specialises in ready to wear luxury leather clothing. Jean-Claude Jitrois is both founder and artistic director of the company.
In 1995, Jitrois created a new material – stretch leather, initially using lambskin, which fits to the body like a second skin. Re-launching as Jitrois: le cuir stretch (stretch leather), the new material was developed in conjunction with the chemist company Dupont de Nemours.
Expanding the stretch leather technique to python (another world first) and kangaroo (first used in autumn/winter 2005/2006), Jitrois has managed to maintain its position as a cutting edge and innovative couture house. In his Spring/Summer 2008 collection, Jitrois used nubuck python for the first time.
Jitrois is now stocked in the world’s most prestigious multi-brand stores around the globe, from Harrods in London, Harvey Nichols in Hong Kong and many, many others.
