Who we are?

Great question, thanks for asking. 

Quinoa Paris is a hybrid brand, a cross between design and fashion, spiced up with different cultural influences, such as architecture, graphic design or photography. Inspiration is everywhere!

Our simple yet unique concept? The bags and baskets of our collection are made out of a single flat piece of die-cut leather folded and held together by adorable little screwback button studs, the « Boutons de Col ».

Whether you are more into the storage baskets of our lifestyle collection or into our bags and fashion accessories, we have a little something for everyone.

4 good reasons to support Quinoa Paris

Hanging baskets in veg-tan leather and recycled leather
Hanging baskets in veg-tan leather and recycled leather

Quality is at the heart of Quinoa Paris' design process. Our creations are manufactured using only high-quality materials - full grain veg-tan and recycled leather, solid brass, FSC-certified solid oak. You can be sure that your product will last in time.

French made products are known to be of the best quality. Our specialized workshops of the East of France and Paris pool their know-how to craft our bags and baskets, according to our strict specification. 

Now the fun part: customize your bag by choosing from various interchangeable accessories to organize all your personal stuff (and we know there is a lot). Switch short handles for long straps. Have fun mixing colors or keep with the classy plain look. Add or remove leather accessories easily by attaching them to the "Boutons de col" studs. Create your dream bag with all your essential features to fit your lifestyle.

We chose environmental-friendly leathers and tanning processes for our collection. There are no chemicals involved, only natural elements.
The vegetal-tanned leather that we use comes from Italy and the recycled leather from Germany.

2 materials to know

Veg-tan Leather (Vegetable tanned leather)

Vegetable tanning is an ancient and traditional craft process that tanneries have passed down over the years. Nowadays, tanneries are equipped with modern technologies and machinery, but the quality of the tanning still relies on one factor: time.

Vegetable tanning is the most environmental-friendly way to tan leather, as there are no chemicals involved in this process: just natural ingredients, such as natural tannins, extracted from wood, bark, fruits or leaves.  Only this technique is able to give leather such unique characteristics, retaining natural flaws and markings. 

This is why Quinoa chose veg-tan leather for its collection, mixing fashion and tradition, and comfort and style.

Recycled Leather (Bonded leather) 

Recycled leather is mainly composed of real leather scraps bonded together with other natural ingredients. Its composition and the amount of genuine leather used may vary according to the manufacturer. 

The recycled leather used by Quinoa is made of 60% genuine leather, 20% natural latex, 10% natural oil and 10% organic dyes. All natural. 

Our recycled leather comes from a German factory, committed to conserving natural resources and protecting the environment. Through constant efforts, the factory is in perfect harmony with the strict German legislation regarding air and water pollution.

It is an environmental-friendly alternative to genuine leather, as it reuses only scraps without extra farming. For all those reasons, Quinoa chose this material to design its home basket line.

Risks and challenges

One of your concerns, as well as ours, is delivery delays. We have stumbled upon too many awesome projects overwhelmed with angry customers' comments. We don't want that.
This is why we decided to establish relatively long delivery periods. We can therefore assure you we will respect our deadlines. We already have informed our suppliers and workshops of our campaign, everyone is ready.

We will keep you informed of every important step or project updates on Kickstarter and social media.

These funds will allow us to make the stock dedicated :
- to our online store
- to collaborate with various retailers based on sales/returns
- to promotional needs (goodies distribution to press and other influential intermediaries)
- to provide samples to commercial agents
- to improve our website and our online store for better references
