In 1948, Jean Cassegrain turned his Paris tobacco shop—where he was known to cover his pipes in an exquisite leather—into an accessories business. Named after the famed horse track on the outskirts of Paris, Longchamp is still family owned and operated, creating superbly crafted handbags and luggage lauded for a decidedly understated, always chic look.
Founded in Paris in 1948, Longchamp is a family-owned company that makes high-quality luggage, handbags and accessories. You may recognize their best-selling Le Pliage tote—it's one of our customers' favorite handbags thanks to its lightweight nylon construction and leather trim. It's got a water-resistant lining, is available in a range of sizes and is ideal for travel since it folds flat so you can easily throw it in your purse or backpack and pull it out when you need to carry more stuff.
