Perrin: The Heritage Brand Architects The Modern Handbag

Perrin is a luxury leather goods brand founded in 1893 in Saint Junien, France.  Founders Victor and Berthe Rigaudy-Perrin began what would become a century’s-old tradition of expert glove making using quality materials.  Now the family owned and operated business offers a new modern handbag line which premiered for Spring 2016.

The collections most notable pieces are the glove and wrist attachments that allow the bags to be worn rather than carried.

Michel Perrin, chairman of the family owned operation, has evolved the brand through the use of new and innovative techniques. Michel recently added a tannery, which processes the skins used for the collection.  This not only makes for a more exclusive product, the in-house tannery also furthers their commitment to produce quality materials.


Recently, Perrin has become noted for their architectural construction and for creating unique unconventional designs that are fresh and contemporary.

Perrin has boutiques in Paris, Los Angeles, New York and Hong Kong.  There is also a flagship design studio & showroom in Paris. The luxury items can also be purchased online.
