World of Moynat

    • The art of leather marquetry

      Paris, 1925. The “malle en maroquin rouge” captures hearts and minds at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs.

    • The art of leather marquetry

      It features leather marquetry, an 18th century technique best known in woodworking, where each piece of leather is expertly cut and fitted to form a motif, with seams practically undetectable to the eye and touch.

    • The art of leather marquetry

      Passionate for the preservation of craft, Artistic Director Ramesh Nair decided to rehabilitate this ancient European technique and interpret it for the contemporary era.

    • The art of leather marquetry

      Used for the first time in the Pharrell Williams x Moynat collection, perfectly fitting leather puzzle pieces are a perfect example of the House’s penchant for experimentation.

    • A heritage of excellence

      Ever since Pauline Moynat set up her atelier in 1849, excellence in craftsmanship has been at the very heart of the House of Moynat. Just as they were 167 years ago, bags are made in France by a single artisan that oversees all parts of leather making. Hallowed traditions and century-old knowhow are preserved and revived in creations that bear the modernity that is the hallmark of Moynat.

    • Exacting angle stitching

      In yesteryears, learning angle stitching was a rite of passage for leather artisans. Two sides of a trunk, edges already painted and waxed, need to be held at a perfect right angle while being stitched with a single linen thread and two needles. Any deviation creates an imbalance that compromised the harmony of the whole design. A Moynat specialty for over 150 years - Réjane herself even had a little suitcase made using this technique - this stitching embodies the quality and discretion that define Moynat and shines in the House’s Mini Vanity.
