The new Zibeline and Zoom models – two exceptional bags, the latest additions to our premium collection. A fresh take on the various styles of backpack and travel bags of the 20th century, they are the main event in this new collection, with a highly original style that still stays true to the simplicity of Bleu de Chauffe. They are the ultimate expression of our savoir-faire.
With the capacity of a travel bag and the soft lines of a tote, the Zoom is as elegant as it is practical.
It has a spacious main compartment plus an outside pocket hidden beneath a flap, perfect for a laptop or files.
It is perfect for carrying by hand, with a super comfortable handle made from a natural rope core encased in full-grain leather, making it supple, hard-wearing, and water-resistant.
Inspired by traditional hiking bags, the Zibeline is a chic leathercraft backpack with an outdoor look characterized by the two small straps on the front. They would have originally been used to carry an icepick or hiking poles, but they are just as useful for an umbrella or other more urban accessories.
Its felt-lined leather straps sit comfortably on your shoulders, and its functional handle means it can also be carried by hand.
Thanks to its large capacity, it can hold everything you need for a travel adventure, but it has also been designed for business, with enough space for a 16” laptop for your urban travels.
An inside zipped pocket on the back means you can safely stow away your wallet or cellphone.
Unparalleled manufacturing quality, with a sanded velour finish on the reverse side, a tailor-made engraved clasp, and hand-made production by our highly-skilled artisans: the epitome of luxury the French way by Bleu de Chauffe.
Our bags are made from start to finish in France, in our workshop in the Aveyron region by our artisans, the keepers of a unique set of leatherwork skills.
While 90% of the leather produced in the world is tanned using chrome or chemical agents, at Bleu de Chauffe we have decided to go against the grain, choosing the only alternative manufacturing process for our leather pieces: vegetable tanning, a natural method which makes the leather more hard-wearing and gives it a natural look and feel, as well as a beautiful patina over the years.
