Fred Pinel is the founder of the brand Pinel & Pinel. But who is he and the story of its brand?
Fred Pinel is an exceptional malletier and designer born in 1969. He starts to study in London but he always dreams about creation and handicraft.
One day, he dismounts entirely a familial suitcase to reconstitute it after, piece by piece, searching the most beautiful piece of leather and the best accessories.
When he goes back to Paris, he studies at Panthéon II-Assass. He creates one day a “pizza bag” that is a great creation and this at this moment, in 1998, that the brand Pinel&Pinel is born. He creates Luxury leather objects for smokers, small leather goods and then trunks & chests.
Today, Fred Pinel excels the leather good universe. He creates wonderful and refined pieces: everyday life objects are made in the most wonderful piece of leather respecting in the best way the French know-how tradition: crocodile skin, shagreen & full leather lining are chosen with the biggest care.
The biggest French big & prestigious names are crazy about the brand: Colette, le Ritz, Victoire and the London big store Harrod’s. In 2008, Fred Pinel received the award called Talen d’Or from le Comité du luxe et de la création.
