Atelier Tuffery
co-director Julien Tuffery
shares his maintenance tips.

“No special care is needed for moleskin fabrics because it is particularly resistant and was created in the past for manual workers. It doesn’t wear out, doesn’t lose its shine and keeps its shape, which means it stays stylish. It’s only the touch which changes as a brushed finish develops over time as an effect of the patina, which is how it gets its name.”

History

CHINOS: CENTRAL TO OUR HERITAGE

Before the advent of jeans, men’s changing rooms would be full of trousers. The emblematic clothing in this era were pleated trousers. They featured two piped (paspel) rear pockets and slanted side pockets, giving birth to chinos. Although Atelier Tuffery was a pioneer of jeans in France, trousers have always been part of the brand’s collection. Traditionally, Atelier Tuffery made its trousers in denim. Historically, Atelier Tuffery’s chinos were named 106, in reference to France’s national road 106 which connects Atelier Tuffery’s hometown of Florac with the city of Nîmes, where Célestin Tuffery sourced his denim.

“Some of our pieces have a first name, directly inspired by one of the characters who have marked the history of the Tuffery family.

These are the lives of people who gave birth to our clothes, such as Léonie.”

Léonie

Warm and full of good advice, Léonie was a woman with an incomparable welcome, who transformed every moment into a treasured memory and had the inside line on all the best places to visit in the region.
