Bleu de Chauffe and Olympus have pooled their expertise to create the ARLES bag for cameras such as the PEN-F.
The ARLES photographer’s bag showcases Bleu de Chauffe’s capacity to adapt its savoir-faire to the world of photography. It can be carried either in the hand, or over the shoulder with a sturdy yet comfortable strap. Made from the finest vegetable tanned leather, it will take on a wonderfully burnished shine over the years, and is 100% waterproof. Thanks to its structure and pleated flap, the objects inside the bag are fully protected even in adverse weather conditions.
The ARLES bag is easy to open thanks to its collar studs, which are covered by two strap loops.
The inside of the bag, with its uncompromising design, is perfect for the most demanding photographer. Its multiple padded yet sturdy inside compartments will protect your cameras, filters, and laptops (up to 13 inches).
There are two zippered patch pockets inside the bag, one at the front and one at the back. There are fold-up pockets inside at the back (for filters, memory cards, pens and other items), and patch pockets for your SD cards and USB keys.
Divider pockets allow you to organize and protect your equipment (several dividers are provided with the bag).
On the outside, the bag features a front pocket and two side pockets, so you can keep your keys and valuables to hand.
The quality of the vegetable tanned leather and functional design of the ARLES bag keep your photographic equipment fully protected.
Each bag is made in France at our workshop in Aveyron, and is dated and signed by the artisan who created it.
