Who is behind Paola Borde?
This brand was created at the beginning of the year by Paola and Constantin, a married couple who left Paris to settle in a small village in the Côte d'Or.
Their workshop is simple, but their passion for craftsmanship is immense. In fact, these leather workers do not hesitate to source locally, such as the pieces of wood which are made by an art cabinetmaker from the village.

What are the values of the vegan brand Paola Borde?
Paola Borde is a French brand offering an alternative to people who no longer want to wear leather, or who simply want to buy in a more eco-responsible way.
The main value of its vegan bags is that they are made in the pure and true tradition of Leather Goods. No cheating at the expense of quality, there are no machines in this family business. All products are handmade.
Did you know ? The saddle stitch in leatherwork is the strongest stitch and is impossible to do by machine ! And all the objects of this brand are sewn with saddle stitch. It takes Paola and Constantin almost a week to make a model : it's impressive!
Its artisans use 100% plant-based materials such as cork, straw or wood. Made from nature is a commitment just as important as producing without animal suffering for them.
