A STORY OF PASSION

Philippe grew up surrounded by sewing machines and fabrics in a family of craftspeople. After studying in fine wood working, he decided to learn saddlery.

A “Compagnon du devoir” Robert PUJADES, a saddler taught him the basics of saddlery and influenced his decision to pursue that career.

Subsequently, he went on to study at the BOUDARD School, in art saddlery and leather goods.
Graduating first in his class, he was immediately recruited to work at HERMÈS.

To broaden his experience, he went on to work at the Maison HELLER a subcontractor for MORABITO where he mastered working with precious leathers entirely sewn by hand.

In order to satisfy relentless passion for leather working techniques, Philippe joined the special orders workshop at Louis VUITTON, where he designed and created one-of-a-kind objects.

After a few years working for these world class leather houses, he will meet Guy CHANEL, a former saddler at HERMÈS, who will teach him how to make a custom-made English saddles.
