In 2012 Laurent and Xavier Volembert founded a brand of French leather goods for men: the Ateliers Auguste. The brand and the boutique-workshop on the Rue de Turenne was their idea from A to Z, 85 sqm devoted to the making, selling and know-how of Made in France. The goods all bear the distinctive signature of the orange-lined pocket in the sacs à dos, shoulder bags, wallets, sling bags and pouches. An Italian tannery supplies the leather and British Millerain provides the waxed cotton. They also sell books, toiletries for men, scarves and watches. The manufacturing workshop in the Vendée works the finest materials for them with skill and respect for the environment.
