THE DESIRE OF A PASSIONATE

"Architect by training, I worked over 8 years in the luxury industry at an international level. 

Passionate about travel and photography, it was during a three-week trip in Japan, between the ascent of Mount Fuji and the discovery of Kyoto's gastronomy, that I realised my bag was not suitable for all situations.

It was never:
- Comfortable enough for a long hike
- Protective enough under extreme weather conditions
- Elegant enough for a dinner in town

No matter how much I searched, I always had the impression that I was making compromises.  

This bag didn't exist, so I decided to create CONTRASTE." 

Hadrien GREMAUD
Founder

 A NAME THAT SAYS EVERYTHING

Beyond the relationship to photography and the duality of black and white, CONTRASTE symbolises the richness of a life full of varied adventures and eclectic experiences.

We believe in those with lively and curious eyes, in those who always seek to explore the world and to go beyond limits and conventions. 

Let’s cultivate our freedom to go anywhere and share the beauty that surrounds us. 

OUR VISION IN ACTION

FOR OUR PLANET

Our sustainable approach begins with the creation of timeless products that will follow you for decades.

In order to limit our ecological footprint, our products are made exclusively from sustainable and vegan materials that require a low water consumption.

With our focus on quality and short supply chain, all our suppliers and leather workshops are located within the European Union.

FOR PRESS FREEDOM


If journalists and photographers are not free to report the facts and alert the public, how would we deal with the problem of child soldiers, women's rights or the protection of the environment? 

This is why 1% of our turnover will be donated to Reporters Without Borders.
