A French denim, born in 2018, from the collaboration between Tuffery and his weaver from the Lot, here, a solid twill (12.5 Oz) that combines a white cotton thread, and a blue woollen thread (that of the Merino sheep of Arles, 45%), the closest to the skin, which gives this fabric a comfort and softness that pure cotton denim does not have. Finally, for the connoisseurs and the curious, let us recall that denim fabric associated, in its origins, a silk thread with a woollen thread.
The cut of the Marthe merino & cotton jeans is inspired by the 80’s pants of TUFFERY (which at the time was called… Tuff’s). The high waist is well marked and lets your hips grow without bullying them, so you have what was called an absolutely contemporary “look”, perfect re-actualization of the one you were in the 80s, if you were already born, of course. As for the many who were born in this crazy decade, or even the next, a return to the images that cradled your youth and that of your mother, Madonna, Cindy (Crawford and Lauper) and Grace (Jones).
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.
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.
