The leather workshop ,
Malle2luxe is one of the last French houses to make pieces, entirely hand-sewn (saddle stitch) and made with the greatest respect for the traditions of leather craftsmanship.
Finesse, excellence, perfection for the manufacture and unique and authentic creation of accessories for small leather goods.
For the manufacture of a case, the materials used are natural and traditional materials:
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.
Apart from this particular case, all of the leathers we use are farmed leathers intended for local consumption:
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:
Leather is a premium material.
There are different specialties in the leather trades. The saddler makes all the leather parts essential for driving a team: saddles, harness accessories ... The saddler saddler, straps, harnesses ...
We perpetuate this know-how ... read more
