About Margerene

Beyond being sublimated, it brings me luck!

And then… one day I wanted to wear it differently.

We

We are our first fans, the desire to share models made in France and atypical that make us vibrate and create emotions.

Bold and technical pieces, but also creative and timeless worthy of our French know-how!

Our bags are rational as our state of mind, our determination to make beautiful and different but useful bags in connection with our time and which are constantly reinventing themselves.

Our inspirations:
“Solange Garnier, Japanese art, the sea, other leather goods manufacturers, our lives”

Me

Laurence, I was born in Normandy, after living in Paris, I now reside in the south of France.

I am self-taught and in perpetual motion. Out of the divide, I break the lines and put a crazy energy in what drives me.

MARGERENE is my story. I already had a very strong connection with the sea, almost traumatic, and I decided to materialize this story through my passion.

I am my own heroine and my own luck

And you?

Our commitment

The respectful treatment of animals is essential to us, we do not have an exotic range.
That’s why we only use skin from the food circuit and have opted to work with partners who are strictly standardized.
Our DNA is to be flexitarian.
We are only starting our story but our goal is to diversify our subjects.
Change is obviously putting less pressure on an industry.
Obviously we are open to modernity, quality, sustainability but above all we work with all our strength to limit the ecological impact of our products.
In other words, MARGERENE has chosen vegetable-tanned leather, upcycling, as well as all virtuous materials.

Our values

Le Made in France

We manufacture in our region of the south-west of the France, with the help of our partners who are all labeled EPV, (Entreprise du patrimoine Vivant), a guarantee of French craftsmanship.

Our commitment is to favor our local actors, today, more than 60% of our partners are less than an hour from us.

Sustainable Quality

Leather

Noble material for millennia, MARGERENE is faithful to this ancestral know-how.

We take care to select materials from the most demanding French and German tanneries in their manufacturing and traceability process. All our skins are R certified.E.A.C .H at least.

  • other known certifications: IVN, Biokreis (organic farming) e.V., ECARF, Iso 9001

The pompom

Our pompoms bring good luck, just touch them and want it… pungent. Learn more


They are made in France (Living Heritage Company Label) and trained by hand.
This know-how is unique.

The circular economy

Flax

We use 100% natural ecological flax for our linings which is grown and ennobled in France.

The France is the world leader and Europe produces 80% of the flax in the world,
Flax is a product that represents less than 1% of the textile fibers used in the world.
And we, we adhere.

Packaging

Our cardboard boxes and protective pouches are not marked with our MARGERENE logo. That is our choice.

Recycling a carton goes through steps such as:

-collection,

-sorting,

-washing… Although we encourage this virtuous process, we at MARGERENE wanted to go further.

Bring these boxes and pouches to life by appropriating and reusing them.
