Atelier Tuffery is one of the oldest jeans houses in the world. This black jean is very special. The thread is dyed black and spun in Brassac, on the Tarn region, France, by the Filatures du parc, then woven by Jacquy Montamat (Tissages du Causse) to give a black cotton twill denim. Which will be cut and assembled in jeans pairs at the Tuffery workshop in Florac, France.
Alphonse is the universal cut of Atelier Tuffery, adjusted with a standard size, it adapts to all, every day, for (almost) every moment.
Vegetable tanned Leather jacron label, copper rivets.
Célestin Tuffery, tailor of Florac since 1892, made Yves Saint Laurent’s dream come true before he even dreamed it: he invented the first French pair of jeans. At the beginning of the century, he made the first working pants with canvas from Nimes, the nearby city, 110 kilometres away, for the track-layers working on the Florac-Sainte-Cécile d’Andorge train line.
Since 1892, Tuffery jeans have never stopped being made in Florac, in the Cevennes. Each pair delivered bears a label with the name of the tailor who made it as well as a small thread reel, so you can adjust the leg length to your measures.
