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.”

It was 125 years ago when Célestin Tuffery decided to offer workers ingenious and comfortable clothing, giving birth to French jeans. Robust over-trousers, practical dungarees, a protective jacket… This workwear of yesteryear has now been reborn and while it can still fulfil its primary function, it pays homage in style to the craftsmen, icons of French know-how, who once wore it.

“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 Alphonse.”


Visionary and avant-garde Alphonse, Célestin’s son, transforms the workwear into an iconic fashion item.

We discovered these Made in France jeans 4 years ago during our vacation in the Cévennes. We had all been seduced by this artisanal know-how and the quality of their great products.
