We tend to forget it sometimes, but leather goods are those types of pieces that have a special added value to our daily life outfits. A wallet, a travel bag, a clutch… a collection inspired by the founder’s trips around the four corners of the world. After two years of travelling and visiting numerous cities around more than 20 countries, the two creators have designed each product from a memory, a personal travel story… The brand today, is transcending trends and becoming universal.
Metropolitans is producing durable accessories through selecting the best quality of leather, in order to present a unique experience to their customers. The last season’s best sellers are the Bordeaux Burgundy card-holder and the Bretagne salted caramel document bag that are a perfect illustration of Metropolitans spirit. The cardholder is the brand’s iconic product, it has two pockets and can hold up to eight cards in total. The design comes in six different colors offering the customer convenience and flexibility.
Metropolitans is also is sustainable brand by different aspects : their CO2 footprint is offset through planting trees with French NGOs. They also try to make a positive social impact: for example during the month of October, 20% of the price of the pink pouch is donated to associations fighting against breast cancer. A simple yet beautiful initiative to celebrate and participate in Pink October.
Throughout their wide range of accessories, Metropolitans found their own way of encouraging people to travel and discover the world. Each product story and each social media post is thought to stimulate customers’ curiosity and push them to find out a little more about a given city or country. The Bali cardholder, the Salted Caramel of Bretagne document bag, the blue Sidi Bousaid clutch are perfect illustrations.
