Discover the jacket
“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.”
Discover the jacket
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 name directly drawn from the area that serves as a natural setting for our workshop. Located for 125 years in the heart of the Cévennes National Park, we create our clothes between the Cévennes valleys and the Grands Causses, which offer us daily inspiration.”
Méjean is the name of the very large and highest plateau of the Grands Causses. It’s emblematic of this land of agro-pastoralism where generations of workers have followed one another and inspired us to create this work jacket, symbolising the perpetuation of ancestral cultures over the centuries.

At Atelier Tuffery, all of our materials are cut in the workshop and each piece is assembled by hand. This ensures that we create high-quality garments which meet our demanding standards, which have not changed in 125 years. We prioritise a carefully managed production flow for the well-being of our employees and to avoid waste. If the garment you order is not in stock, it will take us just a little bit of time to create it especially for you. Quality takes time so be patient, you won’t regret it.
