The history of Maison Moreau started in Paris in 1882 when opening at 283 rue Saint-Honoré, affirming its expertise in the limited circle of luxury leather goods and travel cases manufacturers. The activity succeeded the master cabinetmaker Martin-Guillaume Biennais who was the official supplier of the Emperor Napoleon I.
Maison Moreau then created a leather trunk with a now iconic pattern, inspired by basketry and drawings of wicker trunks braids. It remained there until the early Twentieth Century, when it ceased trading.
In 2011, a trunk signed Moreau at the flea market in Paris was recovered. It belonged to the industrialist and man of the world Robert Bellanger, the last tenant of Fort Brégançon.
Since then, Maison Moreau has been working, between tradition and innovation, to preserve and renew the Maison's singular and authentic universe, with a collection of bags and luggage that are unique in their identity and philosophy.
Maison Moreau wants to be the guardian of an exceptional French know-how, in both the choice of ateliers as well as the selection of materials. The result leads to timeless leather goods that are functional, light and elegant, which get more unique and enhanced by the patina of a daily use.
