The term “Bleu de chauffe” dates back to the first steam locomotives. It was the name of the blue (Bleu) jacket worn by railroad workers who heated up (chauffe) the water to raise the pressure. That’s how the expression was coined. Drawing inspiration from the workers and craftsmen who wore these satchels, Alexandre Rousseau and Thierry Batteux aim to breathe style, inventiveness, simplicity and authenticity into their collections. For Bleu de Chauffe and their makers, this combination of “French touch” elements inspiring each new collection is also a token of quality.
