PARTNERING FARMS AND TANNERIES
Camille Fournet works with rare leathers, searching for the finest skins from around the world. They come from the greatest farms, in Louisiana for alligator, South Africa for ostrich and France and Italy for calfskin and bullcalf leather.
It is necessary to continue expanding one’s search, to partner with the best tanners, searching and searching for the best leathers, as we have the past seventy-five years...
The relationship with the tanner is cultivated over time. Trust is built. With over five hundred color and leather references today at Camille Fournet, the demands are incredibly high. To have an idea, it simply suffices to imagine the difficulty in obtaining the same exact shade on two different skins, twice.
CARING FOR A LEATHER BAG, SMALL LEATHER GOOD OR WATCH STRAP.
Leather, like all natural materials, evolves throughout the seasons, based on its inherent nature, color and use. It naturally develops a patina over time and reacts to humidity.
There are a few precautions to follow in order to ensure your Camille Fournet bag, small leather good or watch strap maintains its natural appearance over time.
We recommend storing your piece each evening, away from humidity, light and sources of heat.
1. Avoid light, water, humidity, solvents and heat
2. If possible, store your item when it is not being used
A leather cream can be applied. Nevertheless, we recommend ensuring that the cream you are using is compatible with the type of leather you have chosen.
