Patou introduces its first leather handbag, Le Patou.
In the spirit of The Patou Way, Le Patou bag is sourced entirely from upcycled, high end, dead stock leather, a raw material that we do not produce. Since the leather stock is limited, each color is a limited and numbered edition.
What's your color?
A bag of many faces, worn in three ways: as a purse, across the chest, or long. Put two of these half-circle hand-bags together, and voilà - the iconic JP monogram is revealed. Designed with a “smiling face” thanks to its half-moon shape, the bag comes in a bold spectrum of colors. You just have to pick your pleasure!

A know-how of excellence
Taking inspiration and shape from the Jean Patou monogram, Le Patou bag was designed in the heart of Paris, in our studio on Ile de la Cité. The designs then made our way to our manufacturer in the town of Ubrique, Spain, in a workshop famous for its expertise in leather goods production for over 30 years. The artisans carefully select each piece of leather, which is then cut by hand. Seven pieces of leather are then assembled. Metal parts are applied, buffed, and shined. Finally, the bag is put into its own organic cotton duster bag. A precious process, Le Patou bag is ready for you!
A unique leather for a unique bag
La Patou bag is the iconic leather good of the Maison. In staying true to our ethos of sustainability in our development, we refuse to produce new leather to manufacture Le Patou bag. We use high quality upcycled deadstock – leathers that were already produced but unused – which we in turn, carefully select, to give it a new life. We limit waste by using high quality raw materials that already exist, creating a bag that is not only ethically made, but will last you a lifetime. Since our leather stock is limited, each color is a limited and numbered edition: just like a work of art!
