Pleated leather, signature of the House
This is our reason for being, to combine know-how and new ideas, to invent the materials of tomorrow in France. Or a new technique, why not? It's called pleating, it's a technique exclusive to Camille Fournet (and duly registered!), and it took us several years to develop it. Put simply, it involves affixing strips to calfskin, which are themselves lined in calfskin, one by one, according to a particular design for each leather goods creation. The idea is simple, create a pleated, trompe-l'oeil effect. The technique is complex and requires many steps for the craftsman. First presented in capsule collections in recent seasons, pleating has joined our permanent collections, which means that we now master it to perfection for all our creations.
Camille Fournet presents the "pleated" collection, the house's signature. Discover the five models of luxury leather bags for men and women, handcrafted in France: hobo bag, bucket bag, crossbody bag, tote bag, leather tote bag.
