CRAIE is a French creative studio, making modular leather goods and shoes. Drawing inspiration from the Arts, craftsmanship, travel and the world around them, Sébastien Germès and Camille Levai decided to launch CRIAE in 2012.
CRIAE is also the love story of Camille and Sébastien, partners in life and work, they love architecture, art, books, Sunday brunch and creating together. They are “artistes amoreux”.
CRAIE’s humorous name alludes to the fleeting nature of chalk which, like fashion, has the possibility to fade and be reinvented each season.
Crafted by artisan in their own Moroccan atelier, CRAIE specialises in reversible handbags with adjustable straps, that can be adapted to individual daily needs. Leathers used are developed exclusively for CRAIE collections in partnership with tanners in France, Italy and Morocco. CRAIE love using vegetable tanned leathers, which have a lower environmental impact and develop its own character with age and use.
