Valet de Pique: Celebrating Timeless French Leathercraft

Rediscovering Craftsmanship with Valet de Pique

In November 2018, Martin embarked on a mission to revive traditional French craftsmanship by partnering with a century-old leatherworking family business in Paris's 11th arrondissement. Managed by a brother-sister duo, this atelier specializes in creating leather harnesses, toolboxes, and nail pockets using time-honored techniques and machinery as venerable as the company itself.

Commitment to Sustainability and Local Production

Disturbed by the fast-fashion industry's rapid pace and environmental impact, Martin was driven to promote sustainable consumption through Valet de Pique. His goal was clear: to preserve and pass on the rich heritage and meticulous skills of French artisans, ensuring each piece not only embodies craftsmanship but also advocates for responsible manufacturing.

Philosophy of Durability and Design

Valet de Pique’s philosophy centers around producing exceptional leather goods that endure the test of time, develop a unique patina, and can be maintained and repaired as needed. Crafted in our Paris and Biarritz workshops, each item is a testament to unmatched craftsmanship. Our artisans, fueled by passion and precision, create products that are not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing.

A Vision for a Simpler, More Considerate World

We at Valet de Pique are dedicated to building a world anchored in simple values and serene contentment—a world where careful attention to detail, respect for nature, and mindfulness towards others are paramount. We strive to create products that seamlessly integrate into your life, accompanying you in all your endeavors and reflecting a commitment to quality and sustainability.
