A local Eco-system, made in the Massif Central
The two childhood friends who initiated this beautiful adventure started it mostly out of convenience, as they both hail originally from Auvergne, the historical base of the leather trades. Everything just made sense: they could respond to a demand by utilizing a local craft already in place. For these born-and-bred locals, all that remained was to seek out the talent. They looked from Thiers to Saint-Etienne, from design studios to the ateliers and the result was the Maison Barthélémy – in honor of the patron saint of tanners – determined from the outset to share the petites main of the Puy-en-Velay region with the most prestigious leather goods brands. And if the collection appears to be at a lower price point currently, it is only to offer an affordable luxury. And to ensure handmade manufacturing for each piece.
