Macosa, specialist in high-end and luxury lingerie and corsetry



Created on March 19, 1973, MACOSA is specialized in the subcontract manufacturing of corsetry, daywear, nightwear, beachwear, medical lingerie, dancewear and knitwear assembly.

Macosa relies on a dynamic team of qualified professionals in line with the expectations of the high-end and luxury market. Thanks to their versatility, they are able to produce very small quantities in semi-autonomous groups and ensure impeccable quality.

Benefiting from a very large (more than 480 machines) and very diversified machine park, the production team adapts itself according to the size of the series and their complexity and invests totally in obtaining customer satisfaction in terms of respect of deadlines and delivered quality. Macosa is equipped with special stitch machines: Day Scale Stitches, Saddle Stitches and a Lectra configuration (model making, placement and automatic cutting).

To complete the range of services, a design office, created in June 2004 with model makers, makes it possible to develop the collections by interpreting the style sketches. Macosa’s design office is equipped with software from Lectra.

Macosa has just received the latest generation of Lectra cutter and switched to Modaris V8 at the beginning of the year.


MACOSA has been internationalizing for 15 years

The company works with many foreign customers: Americans, British, Australians, Belgians, Swiss. MACOSA currently has 100 employees, the majority of whom are women (94%). Located not far from Paris in a rural area (less than an hour by TGV), it contributes to the balance of regional planning. Macosa is committed to respecting its social and environmental responsibilities.

Over the years, Macosa has diversified its know-how and operates in lingerie and men’s swimwear, as well as knitwear and dancewear.


Macosa, an actor involved in training and employment

In order to maintain expertise in line with customer expectations, Macosa created an internal training centre in September 2018. Thus, people who have difficulty finding a job, on fixed-term or permanent contracts and are ready to change their professional orientation, are trained. A concrete alternative to fill the lack of applications and attract young recruits.
