Mr Gabriel Danton established the 'Manufacture Textile du Centre' in France in 1931. A few years later, in 1935, he registered the brand name along with their recognisable red diamond logo, and Danton was born. At their workshop, located in Chatres sur Cher, France they manufactured traditional workwear including overalls, jackets, pants, and aprons.
Throughout the 70s and 80s, Danton provided their workwear to various French public administrations. Today, the brand continues to design and produce contemporary workwear styles updated for the modern day and take influence from Japanese design due their great success in the Japanese market.
