With its elegant cut, natural leather and iconic clasp, the Diane shoulder bag pays homage to the hunter goddess. Like her, it celebrates femininity that is both powerful and natural. Worn on the arm or on the shoulder thanks to its shoulder strap, it gives the woman who owns it a look full of nobility.
Diane: a feminine and timeless leather bag
Our Diane shoulder handbag will seduce lovers of enlightened luxury, with a certain elegance. To design the lines of this iconic fashion accessory, we were inspired by the powerful and proud hunter goddess.
This creation pays homage to her down to the last detail, notably through its arrow-shaped clasp, which recalls the accessory inseparable from the mysterious Diana. Loaded with meaning, this jewel also evokes the accents worn on 18th century royal apparel.
Thanks to its shoulder strap and its rectangular format, this timeless leather bag can be carried by hand or on the shoulder. Neither too small nor too big, this essential bag is the ideal size to carry your personal belongings on a daily basis, organizing them in its various compartments. As for its calligraphic ornament, it recalls the aumônières of the period and transforms this leather bag into a true icon of French Haute Maroquinerie.
A natural leather shoulder bag with an exceptional look
To make this precious bag, our Artistic Director Ramesh Nair went in search of a leather of rare quality. He chose Heritage calf leather and entrusted our artisans with the task of working it in the most natural way. Thanks to their traditional know-how, they were able to treat it with a double vegetal and chrome tanning, which offers a unique touch, both soft and smooth. This bag is available in many colors: noir, coquelicot, chataîgnier or bleu cocagne.
Our crocodile leathers and other rare varieties are also available on special order.
An emblematic know-how of the Haute Maroquinerie
Our craftsmen have mobilized all their know-how to assemble this iconic bag. Trained at the Compagnons du Devoir, they have learned to handle the most meticulous gestures.
For the purpose of the iconic bag, they have realized a number of hand-crafted techniques with great regularity. As for the singular shape of this creation, it was obtained thanks to the achievement of a flat gusset and a work of galbage.
The ornament of this handbag was also fashioned with the greatest care. Forged in gilded or palladium-plated brass, our goldsmiths have engraved it with a calligraphic phrase taken from the Letters Patent of 1754.
This quotation was not chosen at random, and pays homage to the source Diane that springs from the land of Lectoure, the city where the Royal Leather Manufacture was born. Because this shoulder bag has been designed to accompany you throughout your life, and to be passed on as a legacy to future generations, you can personalize this engraving.
You are able to choose the words that you hold dear that will make this creation special.
An artisanal and committed manufacturing
We make it a point of honor to update ancestral techniques of great meticulousness, and we also strive to manufacture handmade leather bags that are respectful of the environment.
The rare leathers we select are all supervised by Cites, in order to preserve biodiversity. Then they are worked and assembled in France, in order to ensure optimal traceability, and to limit our carbon footprint linked to the transport of our goods.
Because we take the time to respect the ecological processes of leather tanning, our handbags are voluntarily produced in limited series, and are not always instantly available.
