Leading French lingerie and swimwear producer Rose Pomme has set up a marketing subsidiary in Spain.

Rose Pomme, based in Roanne in eastern France, employs around 30 people and became an independent company last year after operating as the night lingerie division of the Montrico textile company.

Earlier this year, the firm opened its first store in Saint-Tropez, offering the first in the textile history bio-bathing suits. The new products are manufactured under new technology developed by Rose Pomme.
