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.

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

Through gestures and savoir-faire we witness the realization of Touchez-voir, a project destined for those who in fact do not see. From the museum archives to the atelier, we observe the birth of an original wardrobe and forms that will soon be joined together in a trunk available to experience at the Palais Galliera.
