About us

While teaching the cello there, it was in Bolivia, in the heart of the Amazon, that Amandine Simon discovered a passion for leather goods. San Ignacio de Moxos, in the department of Beni, it is the Amazon which becomes pampas by clearing the land to cultivate soybeans and raise the cattle required for world consumption. We live there to the rhythm of animist parties and the generator which stops every evening at 6 p.m. While teaching the cello there, it was in Bolivia, in the heart of the Amazon, that Amandine Simon discovered a passion for leather goods.

From hunting to making, she discovers each stage of production. Beside open-air vats where the skins are tanned with tree bark, the artisans work the leathers with knives and machetes handcrafted from recycled materials. Leather ties are woven with the full range of South American saddlery stitches. Amandine then makes saddles, hats, belts for the cowboys in the area, experiences her first ecological awareness and learns how to be slow. Back in France, Amandine trained in a more academic way, refined her style and met Bruno. Bruno, him, is a flower of Parisian asphalt. After a road-trip from Morocco to the Trans-Siberian, he crossed China with a thumbs-up to redo the Silk Road and reach India. He settles several months a year in India, which he travels from North to South and unearths precious stoles for luxury. Suki was born somewhere between 2015 and 2016. When their daughter was born, Bruno and Amandine set up their family and their workshop in a secret and island paradise on the Seine and, since 2020, in the 17th arrondissement in Paris.
