A FRENCH KNOW-HOW
THROUGH ALL STAGES OF MANUFACTURING
Today, we invite you to push the doors of our family workshop together to discover all the love and know-how we bring to each of our creations.
Where are our products made?
Our entire range of bags, small leather goods and belts is handcrafted in two workshops: one located in Lyon and the other in Ile-de-France. As for our small customizable accessories, they come to life and are personalized in our workshop nestled at the back of our shop Passage Doré in Paris.
The creation phase
A Made in France artisanal manufacturing
The cutting of the leather
The laying of the jewelry
All the clasps of our bags are made and gilded in our Parisian workshops, while all our primers (bridges, magnets, shoulder straps buckles) are gilded with flash gilding in Europe. We then delicately apply the clasps and finishes by hand to the previously reinforced leather.
The assembly and the sewing
All parts of the bags are assembled and sewn delicately in accordance with traditional know-how.
The edge painting
The dyeing of the edges is done by hand, which is a real added value to the finishes of our bags. We always try to find the shade that is closest to leather. It is a very delicate step in the manufacturing process, a unique know-how that requires great precision.

How do you select your leathers?
All our leathers are carefully selected exclusively in European tanneries: French, Italian or Spanish.
All our leathers are LWG silver certified and meet reach standards. We only work with non-exotic leathers such as cowhide, goat or calf leather in different finishes (smooth, embossed croco or lizard, velvet, grained, etc.).
Could you tell us more about the jewelry that adorns your creations and the gilding?
The clasps are made in France and gilded in our Parisian workshop that recycles its waste. The rest of the finishes (magnets, bridges, loops) come from an Italian factory and are also gold-plated in Italy.
Why do you produce in small quantities?
We manufacture all our creations in small quantities in our French workshops to guarantee a certain quality and avoid over-storage and over-consumption. For the same purpose, we sometimes offer pre-orders in order to optimize production in the face of real demand.
