Master tailor's tip
Discover the tunic
Head of the garment workshop Clémentine Lemaître shares her maintenance tips.
“Before being sold, all our products are washed in France without the addition of environmentally harmful products. The first time you put on your new jeans, they should feel a bit tight because our high-quality fabrics are a little stiff at first. They will relax over time and the less you wash your jeans, the more beautiful they will be in the long term.”

A LEGACY OF WORKWEAR
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.”
Causses are arid landscapes formed in the Cévennes, a set of high limestone plateaus dating mainly from the Jurassic period. Highly characteristic of our landscape, they inspired us to create this grandfather collar shirt, similar to the work tunic worn by people in the region.
“An exceptional welcome which allows you to discover the passion of 4 generations. Marketing that must be encouraged to promote French know-how around the world. If you cannot get to Florac, do not hesitate to order online. With the size guide you will be able to choose without problems and if, by any chance, you are not satisfied you can return your purchase to exchange… A big congratulations to the Tuffery Family I am a big fan!”
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.
