Faune
Skin Deep Leather Work

Jean-Philippe Trapp
Faun Skin Deep Leather Work

For thirty years Xavier Catala has been working as a leather craftsman, making belts in all shapes and sizes in his workshop located in Sémalens, south of France.

His unconditional love affair with belts dates back to the times when many fashion designers could not do without them in their collections, which prompted him to found the Faune company and specialized in this particular craft. Since then, he has been designing and manufacturing thousands of models with the same passion and dedication.

Faune took part in the Made in Town / Montagne Noire exhibition, which was held from October 21, 2015 to February 13, 2016 at the Made in Town gallery in Paris.
