Edwina de Charette de la Contrie is the founder and designer.
She created laContrie because she loves bags and is passionated by craftsmanship.
Not finding the bag or the service she looks for, Edwina is searching for alternatives. On the meeting of an independent leather craftsman and in the course of days crossed in his workshop, she catches the virus of leather and hand stitching.
The family environment, historically involved in the French luxury, transmitted the requirement. She decided to combine and use her talents and character traits in a constructive and challenging project.
In her two level workshop-boutique, laContrie entirely hand-makes bags and accessories in the heart of Paris, between the Palais Royal and Place Vendome.
A unique address where creativity meets tradition, where you can touch, choose, associate materials and see craftsmen at work.
