Chez Moynat

3 years ago by

Moynat is one of those French houses that has been around for over a century but is fairly under the radar. There are so many details to be told, the company is rich with history! From developing patents for waterproof canvas in 1854, to the creation of the limousine trunk for automobiles in 1902, which had a concave bottom to follow the rounded roof of the car – there has been no shortage of innovations. They even created a special carrying case for macaroons…. because yes, macaroons are that important!

Fast forward to 2016 and their bags are as elegant as ever – the mini-vanity is a seriously crushable bag for any century. The team had a chance to visit the atelier in Paris, so we wanted to share a few photos of the wonderfully discreet brand up-close.
