Based in the creative 4th arrondissement of Paris, Ateliers Auguste is home to beautiful, handmade leather goods. Founders Laurent and Xavier Valembert quit their communications business in 2012 to undertake a new venture, and were inspired by their love of biking to create a range of bags that would prove durable in both quality and style. Fast forward to the present day and you'll often find the two in their minimalistic showroom, speaking with customers about their designs over a coffee.

From the founder

"When people shop with us we want them to feel like we've brought them closer to locally-made, high quality products that are built to last."
