Early 20th Century Antique Hand Woven Indigo Dyed Pure French Linen Fabric Made Double Breasted Work Jacket




フランスのワークウェアは、テーラーワークを基本としたパターンメイクと縫製を基本とし、「 ファッション 」と対極の位置にあるはずの「労働着」を超えた存在です。

French workwear is based on pattern making and sewing based on tailor work, and is beyond “work clothes” that should be at the opposite position of “fashion.










This linen fabric from the early 1900s was dyed with indigo dye from yarn spun at a time when craftsmen still had intuition and manual labor, and woven on a manual loom in France.














The fabric was found in an old farmer’s barn, covered thickly with dust and sooty dirt. There is no fading from sunburn, and the color is a deep, complex shade of dark indigo with stain-like black spots from long exposure to dust and soot.











It has a rustic look with a strong warp irregularity, different from the densely woven fabric of ultra-fine linen yarns used for Biaude. The dry and slightly jerky touch with a dull sheen is unique to fine linen with no fluff.











France, which still produces more than 70% of the world’s flax, is literally a linen powerhouse. Flax is used not only for clothing, but also for home linens such as sheets and bedding, table linens such as tablecloths and napkins, and is the most familiar fiber to French people, more closely related to their daily lives than cotton. It is the most familiar fiber to French people, more closely connected to their lives than cotton.











In recent years, with the development of spinning technology in China and other countries, most of the processes other than the cultivation of raw materials (especially spinning by Junbun in China) are carried out outside of France, and the spinning process to turn linen into yarn is now mostly done outside of France. However, more than 100 years ago, when this fabric was produced, the fabric was grown, spun, and woven in France and could be called a genuine French linen.











The wrinkles created by the washing of the lining and the outer fabric, and the clean contrast between indigo and natural colors. 











1.2-1.5mm fine hand stitching on patch surrounding collar. All the buttonholes are hand-worked. Dry handwork that is completely different from the warmth and simplicity of the hand. But the expression created by the natural disorder creates a taste that cannot be created by a sewing machine.











The red linen hand stitching on the back gutter is also a stylish accent.














Based on the prototype of the double-breasted work jackets of the 1930s and 1940s, this work jacket has a curved line at the front and rearranged sleeves.











The front turnover is also stopped by a hand-stitched arrangement.











The rounded, flat pattern around the collar has a unique look that symbolizes old French vintage.











The cuffs of the cook’s work jacket, lengthened to serve the function of a pot holder, are a wonderful balance of chic folded accents and curvaceous construction.














A smart and powerful look with a row of closely spaced buttons. The rhythm of 19 buttons and buttonholes in a row.










アンティーク生地で包んだreinforced buttonの並ぶ前身頃のfacingは、表から見えませんが、なかなか趣のある姿。

The front facing, lined with reinforced buttons wrapped in antique fabric, is not visible from the front, but has quite an atmospheric appearance.











The buttons we chose are the most popular vintage buttons and were used on French hunting jackets, where one button is about the price of 1-1.5 big macs. Dogs, horses, deer, boars, foxes, and wolves. Vintage animal relief buttons with a mixture of hunter and prey.











From the small 16mm size, various materials and motifs of various animals are randomly selected and sewn all over the place. The buttons, with their slightly peeling paint and dull color, are imprinted with the same traces of time that have been etched into this fabric.












Buttonholes are also all hand-stitched.














Linen hand stitching on sleeve outseams and side seams.











The rustic cotton broadcloth lining has just the right amount of tension and wrinkle, and the rustic look of the yarn is appealing.











The hem of the lining, with its deep turnover and hand stitching, swiings without stopping at the body and is light around the hem.Linen hand stitching on sleeve outseams and body side seams.











The hand-stitched wrinkles are also beautiful and soft because of the handwork.











Pockets are lined and hand-stitched to create a rounded and gently three-dimensional pocket.














It is a garment that fascinates people who have values that are never created on paper or digital screens, and who are not confused by trends, brands, or prices.
