More than a century of tradition and innovation

« What we create is made to be touched and to touch the spirit. Durable perfection of function and durable intensity of emotion: this is our dual objective. »

More than 30 years after the JC Perrin house was set up in Picardy, who can say what most motivated the company’s founder at the time? Was it a love of the materials involved, the pleasure of beauty, a passion for fine craftsmanship or the emotion of designing and producing unique, consistently perfect pieces?
The original Perrin workshop has expanded considerably: there are now 200 people perpetuating the know-how and profession of Jean-Claude Perrin, and much more besides ? The company now has four facilities, including three workshops in France and one in Switzerland, allowing us to provide a tailor-made response to the needs of each customer.
Our production methods are based on the traditional craftsmanship of master saddlers, ensuring that all of our leather goods are entirely handmade, from unique pieces to large production runs, and backed up by a modern and efficient organisation.

Our philosophy

« Our firm's philosophy is to offer a unique and genuine product, to perpetuate our craftsmanship, and to create innovative products in line with the image of Groupe Créations Perrin. »

Perpetuating our craftsmanship

We have been constantly perfecting our craftsmanship and expertise in premium leathers for more than a century, passing down this precious heritage across the ages. We therefore have expert knowledge of exotic leathers and are a major player in the watch strap industry, working for prestigious watchmakers and luxury jewellers all over the world.

Sustainable creation of value

Because the needs of our customers are a priority and communication is one of our guiding values, we work towards the joint creation of genuine partnerships. For Groupe Créations Perrin, quality features in more than just our products: it is present throughout our production process and determines the service we provide, relations with our customers and external partners, and our organisation, as well as being the driving force behind our vision.

Design & Development

« Retaining an artisan spirit is essential: a product made with pleasure that will offer pleasure in its turn. » JC. Perrin

Prototyping and development

Our saddler and leather goods prototypers are ready and waiting to model your projects with passion: they will transform your sketch, image or idea into beautiful artisan-crafted leather pieces.

You can also choose all item specifications yourself: from leather to stitching, to dyeing and marking. We are here to make your ideas a reality.

A quality culture

CSR is the responsibility of an organisation for the impacts of its decisions and activities on society and the environment, through transparent and ethical behaviour (extract from ISO 26000).

Quality and improvement: a point of honour
Créations Perrin facilities have been certified ISO 9001 since 2013. We comply with the specific criteria and requirements of our customers by inspecting each manufacturing stage of all products ordered.

Origins, criteria and commitment
Groupe Créations Perrin works exclusively with the best tanners. We select and purchase skins and leathers with the greatest care, in order to meet customer expectations in terms of aesthetics, durability and safety. We guarantee a comprehensive choice by purchasing and selecting the most beautiful leathers in a wide variety of skins, colours and finishes. As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, we have set ourselves the objective of meeting ISO 26000 guidelines on corporate social responsibility which also encourage organisations to contribute to sustainable development.

Our in-house laboratory
We have a state-of-the-art laboratory accredited by the SWATCH GROUP and equipped with special tools to conduct tests on all the materials we receive and stock. Using a wide variety of techniques and a range of scientific disciplines (physics, mechanical engineering), all our products are rigorously inspected in compliance with the ISO standards in force for our industry.

Our facilities

Through the combined forces and complementary skills of our different workshops, we can produce items in leather and other fine materials, from one-off pieces to large production runs. The strategic location of our companies means we can guarantee a choice of products either 100% made in France or 100% Swiss made.
