Lingerie — Designed in france
Typically, the word lingerie is derived from French. Paris has been ruling the world of fashion for more than three centuries and continues to attract the world`s most famous designers.

Today the lingerie market is driven by the advent of modern technologies and fabrics that allow for the design of innovative products. One prominent example of this development is Textiss S.A.S. from Chateauneuf du Rhone, France, a specialist in the creation and distribution of trendy undergarments for men, women and children.
