My workshop is based in Paris.
I buy most of the leather I use from big fashion brands’ stocks and trusted suppliers.
As for the exotic leather (crocodile, snake, lizard…) my suppliers are all respecting the CITES agreement.
The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, its aim is to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival.

I am using only YKK Excella® zippers.
The best on the market so far.
Excella® is the highest quality metal zipper with fully polished elements.
With a beautiful shiny look and smooth slides all the way.
