Our leathers and canvas :
To manufacture the collections, Carré Royal uses only full-grain leathers. Those leathers come from the best French and Belgian tanneries. They develop a particularly fine patina over time.
The full-grain part of the leather is the most noble part of the leather.
The leather skins are selected carefully, we select them one by one
Our leather are as natural as possible, so each skin is unique and therefore each wallet, card-holder, purse has a specific touch.
Lovers of fine goods who appreciate the unique quality of leather and material will know, what we are refering to.
Our leather strictly comply with REACH norms, established by the European Union, they are also submitted to Veslics resistance tests.
We also use European canvas , and fabics whose resistance is checked according to the best industry norms.
