Louise De Bergh discovered a passion for leather during a trip to Madagascar where she met a fisherman who worked fish leather. Back in France, she trained in saddlery before settling in Switzerland. She developed her know-how there with the saddler Christophe Seewer and started her own business in 2017. She creates both personal creations and commissions.
In her workshop on the shores of Lake Geneva, Louise De Bergh cuts cow, sheep and goat skins that she buys in Italy. After marking the holes for the future seam, she colors the leather using water-based dyes. She then sews her creations by hand using two needles before smoothing the edges with beeswax.
