Our Heritage

As an expert in the field of small leather goods, the one that you wear closest to you and that requires a work of great precision, we pay a particular attention to beautiful materials as well as to the finishing touches.

From full-grain leather to the finesse of a clasp, we leave no stone unturned.

Since 1898, we have been imagining, designing and manufacturing noble and essential bags and accessories that stand the test of time, without getting wrinkled.

For all women and men who claim a timeless look, Le Tanneur offers a wide collection of leather goods to be worn every day and loved for a lifetime.
