A piece from the hard-wearing and practical utilitarian workwear uniform, the bleu de travail jacket was dyed in the affordable and now infamous indigo blue as a means to differentiate a floor factory worker from his manager or foreman. French factory workers made this uniform famous in the 1800s, and other European countries quickly adopted and manufactured their own copies to supply their workforce. A living color, the indigo dye in each of these pieces have faded to varying degrees of its rich violet hue.
This particular jacket has been reinforced to give it a second life. We patched and repaired where needed using leftover cotton fabrics in blue hues, and added elements of subtle hand-stitching that are there but barely so - an ode to our detail-oriented friends.
