Laurent Foulché Leather Craft For All Luggage

A trunk-maker for several decades, Laurent Foulché has been taming leather to manufacture bespoke handbags, trunks, chests and various other goods.

He defines himself as both a designer and a craftsman, who likes spending endless hours in his workshop to shape the desires of his clientele, with one hand stroking the leather - preferably 100% bio-based - while the other one is guiding the sewing machine. His know-how travels from small leather goods to seats for private airplanes.
