A L'Ouvrier moleskin chore jacket
Since its foundation in 1905, our shop proudly displays "confectionneur" on its storefront.
Indeed, Henri Honnet, and especially his wife, a seamstress, chose to personally manufacture a few pieces for select Parisian institutions seeking unique models.
Quickly, due to its success, the shop began selling industrially manufactured products like Vétra from the 1930s and Danton from the late 1940s.
However, it continued to craft specific products, which were only available in small quantities, in an artisanal manner within the boutique.
Artisanal production requires a high level of expertise and precision. It is important to note that since the beginning of the century, textile industries have automated processes such as buttonholes, which were previously complex and labor-intensive.
A l'Ouvrier, through the Honnet family, performed all these operations by hand. Despite the limited quantity produced for each model, certain specialized foreign vintage boutiques still manage to find these pieces that symbolize a century-old era and history.
