Edition 11

Moleskins


Moleskin is to France what denim is to America : a sturdy, resistant fabric that was widely used to make work garments from the end of the XIXth century.

Moleskin is a cotton cloth from the family of “futaines”. It is woven tightly then brushed at the surface, which gives it the aspect of a smooth velvet, literally a “mole skin”. Often dyed in indigo, which gives it, as time goes by, a nice patina resembling denim, it is also found in other colors, depending on the profession: white for painters, black for carpenters, or indigo for factory workers.

Its soft touch makes it a very comfortable fabric to wear, particularly in the fall or winter time when its windbreaking qualities prove very useful.

On this Edition 11, we used a 370g/sqm English moleskin on a selection of trousers and jackets, in taupe and navy blue colors.
