All steps of production is done in
France in our tannery in South of France and in our studio in Paris. The entire process takes up
to four months with no less than forty different steps.
First, mineral tanning is made in fuller
(a large washing machine). This step allows to freeze the life of the skin and
makes it lasting and more flexible.
Finishing is usually done with a
smooth agate revealing the appearance and the brilliance of leather and also a
subtle two-tone. Then the leather is immersed in a bath to be stained. This
step offers a very soft inimitable and natural touch.
The finalised and beautiful leather
is prepared, cut and put up by expert craftsmen in our Parisian studio. This application
is very complex and necessitates specialised expertise and savoir-faire.
A case requires manual cutting, unit by unit so as to make at best the geometry
of scales. The leather is lined with tinted goat and chagrined by hand. A
craftsman spends several hours to cover by hand a perfume bottle.NB: we
don’t use pork in our tannery and studio. Our bespoke cases can be made out of
different types of skins: Lezard, Crocodile or Ostrich
