Dear All,

I’m happy to introduce here our Maison, which crafts bespoke small leather goods.


We are a family business started in 1925 by our great grand father, Jacques Hopenstand in Paris. In his workshop, he used to welcome his private customers, the ones who cared about details, and look for the unique products that could perfect their elegant outfits. Alligator handbags, python travelling bags, suede belts or smooth leather ones... the customers’ imagination had no limit, so did the savoir-faire of the J.Hopenstand craftsmen.

After working closely for almost 50 with great names of couture and made the dream of clients from luxury hotels in Paris come true, Jacques closed his workshops and stepped down to lake Leman shores in Switzerland.

In 2015, we decided to re-open the doors of the family workshops and offer an online bespoke boutique where you can create your reversible belts and other small leather goods. The idea is to bridge a traditional Swiss and French manufacturing process with a contemporary selling channel online.
Our core product is the reversible belt that you can fully customise; from the leather on each side, the colour of the stitching to the buckle. Thus you can create the unique product of your dreams!

We have extended our line of products with other small leather goods and artisanal products that fits our philosophy and are happy to craft unique leather pieces for our customers upon request.

Feel free to visit our webpage and I’ll be thrilled to answer your questions about our products or on leather in general.

Warm regards,

Rémi
