Entre 2 Retros, an invitation to travel
Entre 2 Retros was launched in 2010. Virginie Nantas wanted to create functional and designer bags for men: inspired by the car industry, she decided to re-use car fabric and seat belt scraps and give them a second life. She designed the first bags and defined her own specific style based on coloured stripes and numbers. This elegant sportswear style was an immediate success: today, a growing number of retailers distribute Entre 2 Retros’ limited edition collections.
Each bag is unique and handmade in a workshop with a constant focus on quality, detail and finishing touches. Our motto: to create beautiful bags that will follow you on all your journeys, and for a very long time! We offer a variety of bags, luggage and accessories designed for men and women. Eco-designed products that are both bang on trend and practical.
It is not enough for a product to look good. It needs to be well designed.
Creativity is the brand’s DNA. It inspired us to use car seat fabric remnants and turn them into elegant bags. It encourages us to reinvent our style for each collection. And to make amazing discoveries: textured fabrics, luxurious leathers. To bring them together and create models enhanced with new colors, piping and designs. Details that make our bags elegant and trendy. We also use our creativity with the functional design of our bags, as we think them through thoroughly to suit your daily needs.
We want our products to travel with you for as long as possible: days out, weekends, or further abode. These high standards are to be found in our choice of technical and resistant fabrics and beautiful leathers, in the care we take at the manufacturing stage and in our finishing touches, but also in the choice of our partners, suppliers and craftsmen. We want these standards to remain just as high when you make your order, receive your delivery, and further down the road. Because our clients’ satisfaction is our main priority.
By saving fabric that was meant for scrap, we do not use further energy or natural resources to produce our bags. All our creations are handmade in a small workshop which has high respect for its craftsmen. The workshop is located in Morocco, which enables us to follow our manufacturing process closely and limit any transport-related impact on the environment.
Founder Virginie Nantas lets her imagination run free as she discovers new leathers and fabric remnants. Salvaged on the ends of rolls, these materials are in small supply – only a few ‘limited editions’ can be produced. Each collection is unique, styled in partnership with an inspired and open-minded designer. This is why your bag will look like no one else’s…
Upcycling : a ‘prettier’ second life
By giving a second and ‘prettier’ life to fabric remnants, seat belts and leather offcuts, Entre 2 Retros caters to the current trend of eco-design and upcycling. Our brand re-enchants these scrap materials and transforms them into bags and trendy fashion accessories, that are both elegant and sustainable. A responsible process which inspires creativity and focuses on limited editions: each season, we create a new, unique and original collection. For men and women looking for bags and accessories combining style and environmental values!
Designed in France, handmade in Morocco
From the choice of fabrics to their assembly, Entre 2 Retros pays close attention to each one of the 40 steps of the manufacturing process. We source our materials (car fabric, seat belts, leather, zips, buckles...) in France using a thorough selection process which guarantees the highest quality. Our products are imagined and designed in Paris and handmade in our workshop in Morocco, a country renowned throughout the world for its expertise in manufacturing leather goods. With infinite attention to quality, our craftsmen bring life to our creations; they take care of every detail and all finishing touches. And this is what makes our bags so special: they are well made, resistant to wear and tear, and they never lose their looks!
