A Paris-based leather accessories designer brand. Out of a traveller’s need was born a simple, seamless bag: made of a sheet of leather, folded and held in place by the handle. The designer Sébastien Cordoleani, inspired by natural materials and expertise in crafts and manufacture, dreamt up the Archipel brand.
An ethical brand that essentially rests in linking the skills of traditional weavers and dyers spread all across India with those of the craftsmen working out of the studio. The collective skills they bring is an accumulation of knowledge passed down through many generations. Eventually resulting in garments and pieces of home décor, that defy trends and seasons, and will be handed down to future generations.
All about fashion sustainability with traditional knowledge. Stay beautiful and long-lasting.
