Present at Maison&Objet Fair
From 20-24 January 2022
Hall 2 — Stands D6
A unique collection of stunning cards and objects in bright colors high-quality leather with a sensual, soft and noble feel, with metalized hot-stamp.
How such noble material as high-quality leather could be saved from dumping? Or give a second life to leather rolls left over after the manufacturing of luxury products? The BANDIT MANCHOT team had set their hearts on the project for years. They eventually came upon the idea of marketing a collection of leather postcards that would be engraved, tattooed “in the flesh”, forever, and also leather creative goods for accessories, decoration, and stationery departments.

Bandit Manchot is the amazing gamble of 3 designers who have been creating exceptional, resourced leather accessories since 2010 . A proposal that seduces immediately with 100% French artisanal manufacturing, a colorful and joyful creative universe, ultra-personalized collections produced in very small numbers at reasonable prices. A commitment that defines a new approach to an everyday luxury.
A FRANCO MALAGASY COLLAB 2/2
These baskets, named "soubiques" are traditional Malagasy ones used by merchants to transport fruits, vegetables, and other stuff. They are made in the bush by peasants. It is their very raw finish that seduced us, as well as their simplicity and solidity. We garnished them in our workshop just as we know to do it, with fancy leathers and upcycled of course!
A FRANCO MALAGASY COLLAB 1/2
We have been looking for molded leather products for years. Impossible to find them in France, nor in Europe. It is in Madagascar that we've finally found this know-how. These glove boxes are made on wooden molds that are especially shaped for us. The leather is thoroughly wet, tightly stretched over its form, then dried, unmolded and finally over-cut.
