Manon Marcelot

Eyes on Talents member, Manon Marcelot, is a leather goods designer. Her work revolves around the leather industry as a whole, from the animal and agricultural origin of the material to its transformation into a responsible luxury product. Cheptel is a collection of leather goods in bovine leather which aims to reconnect the work of the breeder with the leather industry. Each accessory refers to an element present in the daily life of the farmer and his herd. The parts are refined, functional and reflect the technical codes of agricultural equipment while adapting them to everyday use. Cheptel attempts to shed light on a hidden stage in the leather transformation process: the daily life of the animal and the work of the breeder, essential for the production of quality leather.
