During our May 2011 visit to Saint Jean de Luz, we discovered the handmade products of Atelier Manufactoum (a big “merci” to Madame Sylvie at the Hotel La Marissa for sending us to the shop). Here, Sandrine and Christelle craft beautiful leather and canvas purses, totes, belts, bracelets, and other accessories. All of the leather goods are made with hides from Basque cattle. This allows the ladies to know the suppliers and inspect each order ensuring the highest quality. You’ll love these French bags.
