Pare down to the essence, but don’t remove the poetry.

The Good.

Leather has been an integral part of our lives since the beginning of time.  My own legacy with leather started generations ago in France, where my family started a tannery in the mountain village of Orgelet in the 18th century. Five generations later, I'm inspired by this traditional medium...and am creating a collection of new modern classics.

 The True.

We can make positive choices in the way we live and how we affect our environment. With each new leather piece I make or design, I'm striving for quality and longevity. All the materials and makers have been thoughtfully selected so that the end result is enjoyed for decades to come.

The Beautiful.

The art of wabi-sabi leather-craft is letting the natural materials form into something useful....approaching each product with simple and direct design.
