Our leather is vegetable tanned which ensures better quality and more sustainable leather, a soft natural touch, and a patina which improves over the years.

History of the Cartouchière


The cartridge pouch is a small leather or canvas bag that originated in the late 19th century. At that time, soldiers and hunters were looking for a safe and practical way to carry their cartridges and ammunition on expeditions.


Designs can vary, but generally feature one or more compartments covered by a protective flap. Worn over the shoulder or attached to a belt for quick access to its contents, this item evolved over time to meet the changing needs of the army (especially from the 1930s onward). Its history reflects human ingenuity in the quest for reliable, accessible equipment at crucial times.

The cartridge belt reinvented by Bleu de Chauffe


The cartridge belt is a must-have and an army classic. It embodies the essence of simplicity and functionality. Designed not to impede movement, its volume is perfectly calibrated, offering a practical solution to our needs. This emblematic piece perfectly reflects this season's Bleu de Chauffe signature: unisex or gender-neutral workwear styling.

Bleu de Chauffe, French leather goods


Each cartouchière is made from A to Z by our leather craftsmen in our workshop at the foot of the Millau Viaduct in Saint-Georges-de-Luzençon.

In this video, Bleu de Chauffe craftswoman Marie shows you how a cartouchière is made. Here's the tour.

The character of the cartridge bag


Versatile and elegant, it's equally suitable for men and women. Its shoulder strap can be adjusted (from 95 to 145 cm) according to your preference for carrying over the shoulder or across the body. Its compact size (20 x 17 cm) is ideal for your daily essentials, and its collar button closure is authentic and functional. Its style is directly inspired by this workwear icon, thanks to its vegetable-tanned leather material and codes.

Focus on the material: vegetable tanned leather


In keeping with tradition, we handcraft our cartridge belts from full-grain leather tanned with natural substances such as mimosa, acacia, and chestnut. This artisanal process gives the leather greater durability, improved waterproofing and a naturally soft look and feel, with the added bonus of an incredible patina over the years. This leather is extremely easy to care for, and thanks to natural products, you can beautify and prolong the life of your cartridge belt. All you need to do is maintain the leather with a regular application of natural milk every 3 to 6 months, depending on use.
