Unique piece
Handcrafted in Normandy
Exclusive French Cliche

As a child, Clémence Cahut played in the family bouncy castle factory in Normandy. Today, she created her brand CAHU from the PVC canvases of the inflatable castles of her childhood, upcycled they are transformed into bags and accessories. Inspired by her environment, Clémence reinterprets her grandmother's shopping bag and creates the MAMIE model. For French Cliché, CAHU calls on the artist and illustrator Alexandre Benjamin Navet to use paint on this bag as if on a white canvas. Under the brush of Alexandre Benjamin Navet, a Norman landscape takes shape and gives free rein to the imagination. A canvas bag, a canvas on a bag, a work of art to wear.

CAHU Clémence Cahu takes elements from her past and inspiration from the present to create bags that are  beautiful and “pratique”, for today and tomorrow.  Clemence first saw it when she was a little girl, playing in her family’s factory. A swathe of PVC fabric used to manufacture inflatables. She held it up to the light. Bright, shiny, smooth to the touch. Today, she combines the same PVC fabric with the finest cottons, and the world’s most sought-after leathers, to create iconic handbags and accessories.  ...see more
