Monocle has teamed up with Parisian firm Archipel to bring you this smart, vegetable-tanned leather bag. Designed by Sébastien Cordoleani, the bag is handcrafted in a workshop in Montmartre where the leather is machine cut before being hand assembled – finishing touches include an embossed Monocle x Archipel logo. The bag is made with a single sheet of vegetable-tanned calfskin and has an adjustable shoulder strap. Its fir-green colourway and petite size result in an understated, stylish item that’s subtle, supple and perfectly formed.

About Archipel
The name Archipel comes from the French word ‘archipelle’, in reference to the islands around Corsica where the first of these luxurious leather bags was conceived. Now based in Paris, the collaborative craftsmen at the atelier make these iconic bags by hand, with designer Sebastien Cordoleani having developed a special technique to deliver his version of the seamless leather bag. Each one is made from a single sheet of carefully selected leather and held together with an adjustable handle.
