Le Renard is based on a journey to the satisfaction and individuality of making something with your hands, creating a product that is intrinsically unique.
Each Le Renard item is made in Los Angeles, using natural Indigo and small batch reactive dyes to hand-dye each piece.
What is the process of making a Le Renard Indigo totebag?
Upon completion each Le Renard bag is given a distinct name inspired by the California desert. But the process of making a completely unique, one-of-a-kind bag starts at inception. The 100% linen for each Le Renard bag is cut and individually tied into shibori before it’s dyed in natural, non-toxic indigo. After two to three days and multiple dips in the indigo, the linen is sun-dried in a garden in Los Angeles and washed before it’s carefully crafted into a bag. The rust colored six inch, square suede internal pocket and lining is sewn in place. Matching suede hand-punched washers are made and installed to strengthen the rivets holding the natural leather straps. The leather straps start out light in color and organically darken with time and use to become an even better, more individual version. Just like you.
