Jean Cassegrain founded the Longchamp French luxury leather goods company in Paris in 1948. He named it after the racetrack in the Bois de Boulogne, and it remains a family-owned business to the present. Longchamp leather and canvas handbags and purses are sold today in around one hundred countries.
Their bags are presented in a wide variety of sizes and styles to match the many uses you might put them to. Your choice could be from their selection of large Le Pliage nylon shopping or travel bags with long, slim leather handles. Many of these quickly and easily fold up for simple carrying. One useful feature is the fold over and button top that helps protect your purse and other valuables. Amongst your choice of colours is likely to be charcoal, bilberry, navy, rich red, and warm beige. For other times, you might prefer the smaller and short-handled handbag or tote option.
Longchamp purses feature warm, supple leather. Smaller keyring holder and coin purse options can easily match or accessorise a larger bag. You may also discover other items such as a stylish calfskin bifold wallet and passport holder, or pink leather holder for your personal diary. Shoulder and cross-body small purse bags (some even featuring a striking patchwork design) are also part of the elegant Longchamp range. Compete sets of leather purse, wallet, and key ring, would make an excellent gift for a friend, loved one 'ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ or yourself. You may even find a pair of matching gloves to complete the impression you wish to make.
By matching the inherent French sense of style to high production values, Longchamp effortlessly continues to emphasise today the timeless quality it first showed half-a-century ago.
