Sebastien Cordoleani designs seamless leather bags for his own brand, Archipel; a unique concept that renews forms and gestures with elegance.
Archipel means local manufacturing. In the heart of Paris, in collaboration with local workshops, the leather is selected, cut and assembled by hand in Montmartre.
Archipel offers a universe of pure forms, a design robust and minimalist. The aesthetic is defined through the production and unique nature of the material; each bag consists of a single piece of vegetable-tanned leather*, plied and held together
by the handle. *A traditional and ecological process, based on natural ingredients, offers a noble material, dyed all the way through, that profits from its natural characteristics and develops a patina over time.
