At Le Tanneur, we love leather more than anything. We even have a team dedicated to uncovering the most beautiful materials, based on the desired cut and fall of the leather. We always combine the ideal leather with each of our creations.
For 120 years, we have been perfecting our approach.
Smooth, pebbled, embossed… No matter the finish, we always skillfully work with “full-grain” leather, whose surface has remained intact, natural and on which the grain is visible. It’s the most noble part of leather, and that which we choose to use.

Signature full grain leather
This is THE signature leather of our brand. A unique leather established through the know-how and expertise of our leather makers. What makes its singularity? It is made up of an infinite amount of tiny T symbols, embossed on the surface of the leather. The motif, designed by our stylists, is embossed using an exclusive mould for Le Tanneur. A precise setting between temperature and pressure allows us to control the depth of the grain, which will stay the same throughout time. This process is what allows a subtle and light T to appear.
