Located in the heart of Beaujolais between vineyards and forests, the work of the Atelier de Pravins is dedicated to horse enthusiasts and lovers of noble materials. United by marriage but also by the same passions, and Carole and Philippe combine their skills and work together: He, on the Horse riding side and she on the leather goods side. The common thread of this alliance is based on the work of leather, a noble and authentic material. The creation is Carole's dada, the technique that of Philippe. The material is everywhere in our workshop, leather, linen thread, wool, horsehair, fats, buckle. The workshop is an intimate place where we receive, by appointment, customers wishing to make us unique and tailor-made items. On the horse riding side we discuss technique, position of the rider, resistance of materials, morphology of the horse. On the leather goods side, we talk about colors, trends, elegance. From these exchanges with our customers are born singular and aesthetic products marked by our style and adapted to the desires of the customer.
Coming from an engineering course Philippe keeps from his first job curiosity, the search for new materials and precision for the realization. Several trainings in Saddlery allowed him to train in different techniques, to meet the masters of this craft and to visit the great French tanneries. If the tools that are a few decades old are everywhere in the workshop and used regularly, advanced technologies also support the realization of certain parts. Beyond the tools, and the mastery of the working techniques (patronage, cutting, trimming, seams) to dress a horse it takes tact, patience and a hint of passion. The intelligence of the hand, the precision of the gesture, patience are all essential elements to make the noblest skins live.
Côté Maroquinerie Carole is inspired for her creations by all this equestrian universe. All his creations are named after horse breeds. The saddle point is always in the spotlight. Leather allows it to harmoniously marry "authenticity and refinement" materials ideal for daring this alliance.
