La Redoute was founded in 1837 when Joseph Pollet, son of a rural family, moved to the capital of the French wool region, Roubaix. There he opened the first worsted spinning operation, inventing a number of processes. His son, Charles, took up the torch and, in 1873, built a factory on a plot at rue de Blanchemaille and rue de La Redoute. He decided to name the business Filatures de La Redoute (Spinners of La Redoute) after the name of the street in [Roubaix] where it was located. ...   La Redoute was founded in 1837 when Joseph Pollet, son of a rural family, moved to the capital of the French wool region, Roubaix.
