Atelier Tuffery

It all started in 1892 when workers building the railroad crossing the Cévennes mountains needed sturdy, practical garments. That's when Célestin Tuffery, a 17-year-old master tailor, had the idea of making trousers out of indigo-dyed canvas, the famous fabric later called denim (a contraction of de Nîmes). And so the first French jeans, initially intended as workwear, were created. Today the range is updated but still manufactured in Florac and always according to the highest standards. The cuts have been modernised but, in a nod to the past, the designs are named after their famous predecessors.
