Vent de Terre is a high quality handbag boutique in Paris. The bags are all made with genuine leather sourced in France, and hand made with saddle stitching and original patterns created for style and function. Owner and maker, Anne, I gratefully call a dear friend of mine. I spent many afternoons sipping tea in her studio on Rue du Pont Louis Philippe, and talking with her about leather, life, and art—often with Debussy or Tchaikovsky playing from the back of the room. Anne is a creative soul through and through, and to say her leather handbags and goods are works of art are an understatement. If you find yourself visiting Paris, please, go in and talk with her about her process and journey—and invest in having a Vent de Terre for your keeping.
