How is the French handbag

a guarantee of quality ?


The handbag is certainly the piece of leather goods par excellence for all women who make refinement an art of living. The French style is an ode to natural elegance that doesn't need to go overboard to be discreet and trendy.

From the large zippered tote bag to the small bag delicately carried on the shoulder, through the tote bag, the canvas and leather bag is the essential piece to affirm its style and personality. Much more than a fashion accessory, the handbag remains the partner that must remain practical and elegant for all women.

This is the charm of French fashion which, through the handcrafted creations of leather goods, is part of a resolutely nonchalant, carefree and delicate style. Often copied but never equaled, fashion owes much to the know-how of French artisans and the French way of life.

You can find throughout the world, a very important choice of handbag brands. But if you are passionate about this universe, you will find that the creativity and quality of French designers and manufacturers of leather goods are unanimous.
Generations of handbag designers have been serving French elegance for centuries and have been able to raise the French know-how to this excellence now recognized by all.

Choosing a handbag from a French designer means acquiring a leather good accessory with a long tradition of perfection, designed and manufactured with care to offer an exceptional quality finish.

At the Minettes, we are above all leather goods manufacturers. Composed of passionate designers, the Minettes team is guided by a strong desire to offer timeless, chic and durable handbags.

Each French handbag that comes out of our leather goods workshop located in the heart of France, in the Berry region, is the result of the know-how of craftsmen who have put all their creativity and passion into the design of shoulder bags or zipped tote bags that are elegant, unique and meaningful to the women who are destined to wear them.

Beyond using high quality raw materials, the handbag made in France represents excellence, authenticity, durability as well as a high technicality in the manufacturing processes or treatment of leather. The quality of the assemblies of The Minettes canvas and leather bags are a guarantee of perfection made possible by the ancestral know-how of our craftsmen creators.

This is how we are able to offer you elegant, functional and resistant bags that you will wear for many years.


A responsible approach for the local economy.

In addition to acquiring a high quality and durable product, choosing a handbag made in France represents a strong commitment to promote the know-how of French artisans and thus contributes to the survival of these crafts deeply rooted in our traditions.


The availability and service.

Although the handbags of the French designer The Minettes are synonymous with quality and longevity, it can happen that some accidents come to damage your fashion accessory. Choosing a French manufacturer allows you to have a local service for possible repairs: Replacing of a stained leather insert or resumption of a seam that has been cut...

Buying or offering a French handbag, more than the purchase of a leather goods accessory allowing to show a style and a personality, it is above all choosing the quality and the creativity of a local craftsman, it is adhering to values of sharing and participating in the promotion of the French manufacture while preserving an ancestral know-how.


Arts and crafts, the quality assurance of your handbag !


When you choose a handbag, there are all the aesthetic aspects but also all the invisible details that will guarantee the longevity of your handmade leather goods.
The origin of the leather, the resistance of the canvas, the quality of the accessories, the solidity of the assemblies... So many criteria which will determine the way your bag will cross the time.

In the same way, a 100% French artisanal manufacture ensures your handmade bag a greater durability thanks to assembly and sewing techniques carried out in the rules of Art.
Choosing a handbag made in a French workshop, such as those of Les Minettes, is to offer yourself a stylish, responsible and sustainable item while avoiding the purchase of a mass-market product often manufactured in "low-cost" countries where social and environmental responsibility is often more than questionable.

Finally, all the accessories such as zippers, snaps or the strap must be up to the exclusivity of a French-made handbag.
The Minettes brings great importance on the quality of the finish of these elements so that your French bag is up to the standard of our craftsmen's know-how and that it meets your quality requirements.
