Bleu de travail” means “work blues" in French. So-called because the majority of French workwear was dyed a deep, occasionally purple-y indigo blue. The depth of this unique blue hue can be attributed to the fabrics most often used in French workwear – sometimes a canvas or cotton but usually a moleskin, a fabric where both warp and weft threads are dyed the same color.
A vintage holy grail: the French Workwear is iconic piece produced in this evocative deep indigo hue. – not every hipster at your local thrift store has their own pair.
