Welcome to my shop !

The origins :

Surrounded by a family of passionates and artists, it is natural that I turned to studying art, sculpture exactly. During this period, I had the chance to experience the noble material which is leather. This meeting was a revelation. So I started to create my objects, bracelets, bag, my saddle motorcycle... My father, with whom I used to do mechanics the weekend came a day with a wooden box. This box contained many tools, some rusty, some broken, small jars filled with pressures, steel buckles, a bunch of little things that only wanted to be assembled. My father told me that my great-grandfather was a harness-saddler. This box contained his tools, all a century old! My passion made sense, as if it were inscribed in my genes. This box became my Pandora's box. For six years I Trained myself to leatherworks.

With Bandit, I try to bring a new energy into working with leather. An energy close to my aesthetic influences, to what inspires me and what feeds me. Therefore, you can find patterns from tattoo universe to rock, custom culture, all these passions I practice at my level. I act like a sponge with all these influences. I am constantly searching, realizing sketches, looking for new shapes, new grounds and I hope that each creation of Bandit feel that singularity. I like to offer items with personality, solids and comfortables and that will patina over time.

The custom-made :

This way came naturally. Because it is already happened to have bad experiences ordering stuffs that were not up to my size once received, but also because I like to have a good relationship with my clients. Sometimes people come at my workshop, tell me their stories, then I transcribe their cravings. They can have their custom items, it is important to me. So it's natural that every item is made to the measure of the person who will wear it. Behind every item I create, I think above all to the person who will wear it. Singular, to the end.
I am the first customer of my work , I wear my bracelets and belts, I use a guitar strap I made, etc ... so I know if it is comfortable to wear and convenient to use before putting the model for sale !

My leather :

I worked on a lot of types of leather but none is more warm and living as the vegetable-tanned cow leather. This leather is the only one to offer a flexible, a warm feeling and an exceptional lifetime. It is treated in wooden vats with different tree barks during a entire month to give it this charm and warm touch.

I hope this small presentation has pleased you, feel free to share my work if you enjoy it, and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any wishes, I will answer with pleasure !

Thanks for your time,
Enjoy, and don't forget to rock'n'roll !!
