A REVOLUTION IN LEATHER GOODS….
The world changes, as do our habits. We’re referring to new forms of mobility – finding a sense of lightness in how we get around. And because leather goods accompany our every step, they must be reinvented. They must take into consideration that the way we travel today is not like that of yesterday. There’s no need to choose between luxury and practicality – discover the elegance of movement.
It all stems from a desire. Let’s open our minds to other ways to play with leather. Let’s challenge our artisans with a notion of contemporary design, based on the item’s use. Let’s create a studio in which to innovate with them, that allows for new methods and ideas.
Since 1945, we have been crafting small leather goods by hand in France, which draw on our obsessions: adapting to uses, playing with contrasts, finding luxury in the details, marveling at things that are well thought-out.
All that we have learned and continue to learn thanks to these seventy-five years of creation – this love of precision and movement, this unprecedented mastery of hundreds of rare and precious leathers – we place at the service of those who love it, adapting to their tastes. No breaks; only bonds.
IT ALL BEGAN WITH A STRAP
The story began in 1945. In his atelier in Saint Quentin, Camille Fournet created watch straps and small leather goods during this period of global acceleration and increasing mobility. He immediately became interested in the delicate work involved with rare leathers. And he swiftly became the privileged partner of the most prominent watch houses.
The spirit endured.
Through our travels around the world, our expertise in precious leathers further developed, year by year. Today, we propose over 700 different materials, colors and finishes, for the greatest pleasure of those who love defining their leather creations down to the smallest detail.
Ultra-personalized leather goods creations, where everything can be tailored. When everything begins by creating watch straps, made-to-measure becomes only natural, in all that we do.
INCEPTION AND RENAISSANCES.
Since the early 2000s, under the patronage of its new leadership, Camille Fournet has been expanding its leather goods realm. Bags and small leather goods conceived in Tergnier, in Picardy, France, just alongside our watch straps. We continue to strive for the right balance between traditional savoir-faire and contemporary technologies. The artisanal ateliers must continue to face new practices and ideas.
We consider everything down to the smallest detail, but the details that truly matter are not always the same from one person to another. Our made-to-measure service grows to englobe even more possibilities each year. Today, it is enriched by an online experience, which you can discover with our configurator. Fun and highly personal.
THE FINE LEATHER GOODS OF TODAY ARE INVENTED IN FRANCE, IN PARIS, IN PICARDY. MADE-TO-MEASURE, THEY ARE INVENTED EVERYWHERE YOU GO, AS WELL.
