Gainerie turenne paris 3rd gilbert rotival main

The know-how of gainie r, gainier a profession which is lost, conquered by the change of lifestyle. This ancestral art of perfection consists in covering any object with leather to sublimate it. The leather workshop malle2luxe acquired its know-how in sheathing from the oldest sheathing house still in activity in Paris:

  

Gainerie Rotival, founded in 1895.

  

Three generations  of the  best workers in France  have followed one another.

Gilbert Rotival 85 years old,  acquired from his childhood the know-how of excellence by observing his father who himself had been trained by his father for the making of travel articles including cases for fine jewelry and for the manufacture of leather goods for the biggest luxury houses. The Rotival house has collaborated all its life with these prestigious houses which have made French know-how shine all over the world.

HOW TO MAKE A TAILOR-MADE BOX IN 8 STEPS

 

Determine the size of your case . A case is made to measure to correspond to a piece of jewelry, for this reason, we have no "standard". We use 3 or 5 mm wood for the manufacture of our cases. For small cases, we recommend 3 mm wood.

  

 1- Take the overall  dimensions  of your jewel

Width x Length x  Thickness

  

  

Example of an "overall" dimension measurement of the thickness of the jewel, in order to complete the thickness of the case. 

 

2- Determine the spaces around the jewel

  

3- Make a 1/1 scale sketch of the case with the jewel

  

4- Mark the location and  clasp systems :

clamp, stroller (butterfly), screw, sleeper, hook ... 

  

All the elements necessary for the manufacture of the case.

5- Determine the  opening direction of the case

  

5.1  - In the case of a double opening, choose the number of fixing brackets.

  

5.2- In the case of a simple opening, choose whether the opening button is sheathed or made of brass.


6- Choose the color and the exterior leather

Breteuil leather  

Crisp Leather  

Exotic skin  

...  

  

7- Choose the interior color (s)

  

8-  Lid

8.1-  Choose the cover trim:

OLD DUCHESS SATIN

We do not supply its products which are from old stocks and therefore the colors and quantities are not followed.

 

For the cover interiors, you can provide us with your old duchess satin, or old silk satin, velvet or other textile. Each high jewelry house has their own stock and we regulate the fabric as and when orders are made.


GOLDENING AND CUSTOMIZATION OF LEATHER

The gilding, whether on goat leather, goat suede, exotic skin (crocodile, ostrich ...) or on fabric (silk, duchess satin), is one of the specialties of our workshops. It allows the personalization of cases and leather goods. 

  

It comes from the tradition of the aristocratic world, just like the crowned numbers, the initials and the bands of colors painted on the old trunks which allowed to be identified by their owner during transatlantic voyages. 

  

If most commonly these markings are done with gold, we sometimes mark with silver, or hot without adding gilding.

 

Manufacture of marking tool with your own logo to personalize your cases. Just send us a TSX illustrator vector file (.ai - Pdf - eps) as well as the size of the marking you want and we will take care of everything.

Price from: 280 euros 

We can also add lines of text to further personalize your boxes such as a brand, first name, initials, date of birth, wedding or any other nod to the lucky recipient.

NOBLE AND NATURAL MATERIALS

NOBLE AND NATURAL MATERIALS

For the manufacture of a case, the materials used are natural and traditional materials:  

  • The wood  for the structure and the leather to wrap your precious objects, sometimes silk. The wood we use is poplar from French forests. Extremely light, the structure is only 3 mm to 5 mm thick.
LEATHER RANGE - MANUFACTURE OF HIGH JEWELRY CASES France Paris
  • From goat leather, all the leathers offered are tanned in France. High-end skins, the choice of excellence.

ORIGIN AND TRACEABILITY (CITES)

ORIGIN AND TRACEABILITY (CITES)

First and foremost, be sure that the leather we use has great traceability. If at one time wild animals were victims of poaching endangering the extinction of the species, that time is over.

 

International cooperation, aimed at ensuring the preservation of endangered species, has established traceability by the Washington Convention (CITES).

 

This highly supervised trade requires that each skin has a unique bar code certifying its origin and the guarantee of the preservation of its resources for the future. Slaughter is regulated by a quota specific to each country according to the population in the country of origin. It is for this reason that we can find elephant, ostrich, rhinoceros, seal, shark, kangaroo, caiman, snake leather ...

 

Under no circumstances can the rare leathers found in France come from poaching animals.

French exotic leather case manufacturer

 

Apart from this particular case, all of the leathers we use are farmed leathers intended for local consumption:

  • Goat: India
  • Cattle: Europe 
  • Crocodile and alligator: Southern United States, Australia, Thailand
  • Water snakes and reptiles: Thailand 
  • Ostrich: South Africa
  • Elephant: Africa
creation of genuine cowhide leather case

All these skins therefore come from slaughterhouses which feed, according to their cultures, the local population in the 4 corners of the world. It would be regrettable to waste all these skins which only ask to be sublimated to create exceptional objects! Much more ecological for the planet than plastic: imitation leather, pvc or other resin.

 

The skins are then tanned. This process makes it possible to stop the putrefaction. It consists of transforming the skins into leather, making them more durable and more flexible. This operation is done in tanneries.

 

Once tanned, the leather benefits from unmatched characteristics in terms of:

  • Its mechanical properties (flexibility, traction, shear)
  • Its resistance to abrasion (friction)
  • Its conservation over time, a well-maintained leather can be eternal ...

Leather is a premium material.
