During a visit to the south of France, the king tasted for the first time the famous French plums —prunes in French—of the Brignoles region. He loved them so much that he ordered to have a trunk full of plums sent to him each year. This story marks the birth of La Prune Paris, the legendary firm that currently manufactures exclusive and elegant trunks, suitcases, briefcases and handbags, fine leather articles are created exclusively for discerning clients seeking quality, the best materials and the finest finishes.
The French firm La Prune Paris continues the tradition of the custom made trunk, its banner product thanks to its beauty and elegance. Each trunk is specially manufactured and tailored and to fit the customer`s requests, using varied and noble materials such as poplar, beech or ocume wood; the best calf, cow and goat leather that rival with exotic ostrich, stingray, python and crocodile skins, and metals such as nickel, palladium or 24 carat gold.
Especially popular trunk models are their Picnic for al fresco lunches; the Caviar model that comes with its own table service that allows the sturgeon eggs to be enjoyed in the most sophisticated way; and the Kallista model with compartments and drawers for transporting precious jewels.
