The story of Léo et Violette is our story. We are Léo Dominguez & Violette Polchi. Two parisian lovers, sharing our lives for more than 5 years. Since the first day we met, we've always had the motivation to develop a common project. By creating le petit cartable in early 2013, we started to fulfill that dream.
The amazing success that we had on Kickstarter reinforced our will to create our own products, close from our needs, our dailylifes and our styles. We have been strongly influenced by the support of our backers, friends and families, and that's why we decided to create a brand that is very close from its customers.
We decided to be a 21st century company :100% online - without middle men. To you from us, directly.
We sincerely hope you will help us become a better brand. Your feedback is what matters the most. Bienvenue chez Léo et Violette.

The GQ choice : "Black or green, with a solid and flexible leather, le petit cartable protects your devices in dedicated compartments"
“Wear it as a backpack, with its handle or its shoulder strap. Le petit cartable will adapt perfectly to any lifestyle.”
“A truly functional and stylish range. With beautiful finishes. Really high end products !”
“No need for an extra case or an extra sleeve to protect your devices. What you need is just le petit cartable, de Léo et Violette"
“Le petit cartable perfectly protects your iPad and MacBook. It is nice, smart and modern"
After our Kickstarter's campaign, we started to look for a factory that would be able to understand our project and help us deliver high-end leather goods to our customers.
In one month, we visited different factories in Spain, France and Italy. And it's in Naples, Italy that we found the perfect company for our project. That factory was created in the late 70's. They have an expertise in leather goods and currently work for some of the most influent designers in the world.
In June, we decided to make a first batch of prototypes. It allowed us to test the leather, the hardwares and the details of our new models. We continued that process for a few weeks and in early Septembre we decided to start the production.
This collection is, and will always remain, our very first collection. We hope that, thanks to your help, we'll have the chance to create a new one soon...
