Sale to private individuals and professionals
Founded in 1864, this tannery makes full-grain leather from cow hide used for furniture (chairs, sofas), boats, aviation, leather goods, case-making, shoes and watch straps.

Its rare know-how? Flawless skins, meticulous colours and graining patterns. The company has over one hundred years of experience, which it uses to make bespoke leathers.

Its luxury products are available in 1,300 colours. Around sixty different graining patterns are available: "crocodile", "lizard", "python", "shagreen", etc. Grained leathers are then finished in a single or dual tone. Depending on the desired appearance and the final use, three types of finishing are possible: aniline, semi-aniline or pigmented.

The tannery works exclusively for professionals and exports 20% of its turnover.
