Bleu de Chauffe
Directly inspired by the industrial world, the Bleu de Chauffe bags appropriate working tool bags codes in a stylish, practical and trendy way for a daily usage.
Entirely made in their workshop of the Larzac province in France, the cut and the stitching are hand-made by artisans with an exceptional expertise and tremendous know how. As a unique piece of work, each bag is dated and signed by the artisan.
Who are you?
I am Alexandre, designer and creator of Bleu de Chauffe.
How did you start in fashion?
I have been working in the fashion industry for many years. After working for luxury and sportswear brands, I have travelled across the world to produce my creations. When I have created Bleu de Chauffe I wanted to renew with "local knowledge" and real "Made in France" products. Each Bleu de Chauffe bag is manufactured in France by our artisans in the finest fabrics. We use tanned vegetable chrome-free leather and each piece is signed and dated by the artisan who makes the product.
How would you define your style?
The Bleu de Chauffe style. Indeed the Bleu de Chauffe products are authentic pieces inspired by business bags for a workwear silhouette. The style of the products is timeless and they are made to last. We revisit postman bags, plumber, Forestry and musette ...
What inspires you?
People, their actions and creations. A man like Jean Prouvé, who revolutionized design and industrial architecture is an example to me.
What are you most proud of?
Certainly to have created a label that we want to be sustainable. We create what we love by perpetuating the French handmade know-how.
Where do you manufacture your products?
Each Bleu de Chauffe bag is manufactured in France in Aveyron by our artisans.
If your brand was a music, a movie, a cocktail...
A music... A sound of Miles Davis during his concert on the Isle of Wight in 1970.
A cocktail... An amber beer.
